During a later exchange of gunfire, after Duran fled, two Roseville police officers were hit by gunshots — one in the jaw and the other in the shoulder — and a third officer sustained shrapnel wounds from rounds that hit near them, Walstad said.

Two of the officers were listed in stable condition at Sutter Roseville Medical Center, and a third was in serious condition.

As officers attempted to capture the suspect before his surrender, helicopters were circling overhead and armored vehicles and other police cars flocked to the area Friday night. Roseville is about 20 miles northeast of the state capital.

In anticipation of the standoff lasting through the night, some local residents were bused to a community center to spend the night.

Police Chief Daniel Hahn said the Roseville officers were all male and veteran members of the force. Hahn said none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening. No civilian injuries have been reported.
