Wednesday, May 08, 2013

The incident happened at the Santa Rosa Rancheria in Kings County. Authorities say Brian Resendez opened fire at Tribal Police Wednesday evening, then he went into his home and refused to come out.

The Kings County Sheriff's Office said at one point Resendez set his own house on fire. Authorities also said some on-lookers were throwing rocks and bolts at both law enforcement officials and fire fighters trying to put out the flames.

Resendez was arrested and is facing several charges.
