NORTH AUBURN, Calif. (KTXL) -- Placer County deputies apprehended a wanted parolee Wednesday after he barricaded himself inside a home in North Auburn.

The Placer County Sheriff's Office reports just after 2 p.m., they received a call about a fight between a man and a woman at a Terry Lane home located near Dolores Drive.

Deputies learned the man involved in the fight was 58-year-old Kelly Callahan, a parolee at large out of Stanislaus County. Law enforcement has been looking for him ever since November when he ran from his parole officer.

"(He) has a long history of violence and has several felony convictions and he is known to have a lengthy history of violence," said Angela Musallam with the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

After hours of refusing to leave the home, the sheriff's office says Callahan surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody.

"We're very grateful that he came out and surrendered peacefully because this could've turned into a much more dangerous situation," Musallam said.

Inside the house, there were also several other people but deputies successfully got them out safely. One person who was inside the home with Callahan sustained minor injuries.

It's unclear why the suspect was at that house, if he lives there and what his relationship is with the female victim.
