OCEANSIDE (CNS) - An assault suspect holed up in his Oceanside house Thursday and allegedly fired a pellet gun at officers after they tried to arrest him, prompting a several-hour standoff that ended with his arrest.
Police went to the home in the 600 block of South Cleveland Street about 3 p.m. to take 50-year-old Sean Myers into custody on suspicion of assaulting his father and a neighbor, Lt. Leonard Mata said.
When officers contacted him, the suspect retreated into his home and refused repeated orders to surrender, according to Mata. At one point, he fired a pellet gun out of the house, striking an officer in the face. No serious injuries resulted, Mata said.
In the late afternoon, a SWAT team was called in to surround the home and prepare to enter it forcibly, if necessary, Mata said.
Officers fired tear gas into the home shortly before 6:30 p.m., forcing Myers out. Officers then were able to take him into custody without further incident.
