ORANGEVALE, Calif. (KTXL) — A man suspected of attacking his mother was taken into custody after a stand-off with Sacramento County deputies at an Orangevale home.
On Wednesday, a woman told a friend her adult son had a gun and was trying to kill her, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office. Just before 9:30 p.m., the friend called 911.
Deputies went to a house on Hazel Avenue near Elm Avenue where they found the woman alone. The sheriff’s office says she had been “brutally (beaten)” by her son and had injuries that were not life-threatening. However, she had not been shot.
She was taken to a local hospital.
The sheriff’s office reports their deputies were unable to find the son Wednesday night and left the house.
By Thursday around 12:30 p.m., someone called 911 to say the woman wanted to get some items from the home but believed her son had returned, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies went to the home but the sheriff’s office says the man refused to surrender. By 5:30 p.m., gas was used, forcing the suspect to leave. Authorities say a K-9 stopped him when he became uncooperative and he was taken into custody.
UPDATE: Suspect came out after deployment of gas. He was taken into custody by K9. No one else was injured during this incident.
