Charges were filed today against Samuel Duran, 32, of Roseville in connection with Duran’s assault on a Homeland Security and Immigration (HSI) Agent and Roseville Police Officers. The HSI agent and Roseville Officers attempted to arrest Duran, who was a “Parolee at Large”, on October 25, 2013, when Duran fired at them striking the Agent in leg. The complaint also contains charges related to Duran’s assault on other Roseville Police Officers who attempted to apprehend him and to the assault on the family that lived in the home that Duran used to barricade himself.
The complaint charges Duran with seven counts of Attempted Murder of a Peace Officer and seven counts of Assault with a Semi Automatic Firearm on a Peace Officer. Duran is further charged with one count of Residential Burglary, two counts of False Imprisonment, and two counts of Making Criminal Threats. He is also charged with Possession of Stolen Firearm and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. There are also additional allegations involving the use of a firearm under California’s 10-20–life law and other applicable weapons statutes.
It is further alleged in the complaint that the defendant has been previously convicted of Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Attempted Carjacking. Both convictions are “Strikes” under California’s “Three Strikes” law. If convicted, Duran faces life in prison.
Duran is currently being held without bail in the Placer County Jail. Duran’s arraignment is scheduled for October 29, 2013, at 1:00 in Department 13 of the Placer County Superior Court.
