ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Some residents of a suburban Sacramento city are still waiting to return to their homes after a Friday night shootout between law enforcement agents and a wanted parolee.

Roseville police spokesman Lt. Cal Walstad said that one Roseville police officer with a jaw wound and a federal immigration agent shot in the leg remain hospitalized Saturday. Four other Roseville officers injured by shrapnel were treated and released.

The suspect, 32-year-old Samuel Nathan Duran, was taken to the Placer County jail Saturday after being treated for scrapes and cuts after surrendering just after midnight.

Officers encountered Duran on a special patrol. He was riding a bike and armed with a handgun, but took refuge in a nearby home.

Authorities say he is being held on a parole violation, and will be charged with attempted murder.
