By Jimmy Lee, Director of Public Affairs, Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff
On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at about 8:43 PM, Bay Station Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched to a report of a person with a gun at a home on the 2400 block of O’Toole Way in the Tara Hills neighborhood near San Pablo in unincorporated Contra Costa County.
A person apparently brandished a weapon and possibly fired some shots. There were no injuries.
Deputy Sheriffs attempted to make contact with the person but were not able to. At about 11:30 PM, the Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team and negotiators responded to the location. According to a KPIX CBS5 news report, the deputies surrounded the home.
Negotiators continued trying to make contact with him. The SWAT Team later this morning entered the home and detained the man.
The 30-year-old resident is not being identified. He was later taken to the hospital for evaluation.
