Police Standoff with Armed Suspect in Merced County Ends Peacefully
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- In the Merced County town of Livingston, swat officers late Thursday afternoon converged on an apartment complex near Walnut and Franci. Officers were trying to catch an auto theft suspect believed to be armed with a gun.
The investigation started earlier in the day when police tried to pull him over after a woman reported her car had been stolen. After a brief chase, investigators say he bailed out of the stolen car and ran into the apartment complex.
After about two hours, police managed to get the suspect to surrender without incident.
