FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A huge S.W.A.T. Operation in West Fresno County ended with the arrest of a double murder suspect.
Dozens of officers surrounded a home around 6 p.m. in Mendota after police received a tip that a man wanted for killing two people in Santa Cruz last month was inside the home. But the suspect and his friends didn't want to come out.
Police roped off a huge area around the home and neighbors had to stay indoors. After two hours, police convinced the suspect to surrender.
Police arrested him and detained six others for questioning.
