SAN RAMON — A man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting a bank representative when he and two Contra Costa County sheriff's deputies tried to serve an eviction notice.

Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said the man surrendered Wednesday after a four hour-long standoff in a gated community in San Ramon.

Deputies knocked on the suspect's door around 2 p.m. but no one answered. Lee said that when the bank representative jiggled the doorknob, a shot was fired through the door.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound in the leg.

The Contra Costa Times reports ( the $1.6 million home is in foreclosure. The suspect's name was not released.

Last April, a Stanislaus County Sheriff's deputy and a locksmith were fatally shot when they tried to evict a man from his Modesto home.
