ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Placer County officials have filed attempted murder charges against a 32-year-old man accused of wounding six police officers during a violent confrontation in a Sacramento suburb last week.
Samuel Duran, of Roseville, was charged Tuesday with seven counts of attempted murder of a peace officer and seven counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm on a peace officer. He also faces weapons, burglary and false imprisonment charges.
Duran allegedly fired at a Homeland Security officer and Roseville police last Friday when they tried to arrest him as a parolee at large, then barricaded himself inside a home.
Duran's previous convictions for assault with a deadly weapon and attempted carjacking count as two "strikes" under California's Three Strikes law. He faces life in prison if he is convicted.
