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 (http://bit.ly/1gAi5tZ) 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.
