ELK GROVE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man who fired shots at officers during a standoff remains in a hospital, recovering from wounds caused by police K-9s and smoke inhalation.
The Sacramento Bee reports Elk Grove Police Officer Jason Jimenez says the suspect is accused of setting a home on fire Friday during the incident, and eventually jumping out a window before he was taken into custody.
Jimenez says no officers were hurt in the shooting.
Jimenez says officers received reports of a disturbance and when they arrived, saw three adults come out of the home, but a man remained inside.
He says the man barricaded himself in the house and fired shots at officers, but did not hit them.
Jimenez says the man started a fire that spread through the house.
