FAIRFIELD, Calif. - A man was found dead at the conclusion of a SWAT standoff in Fairfield that forced the evacuation of several homes Monday.
Neighbors said it started when they heard a barrage of gunfire coming from the suspect's home.
Swat officers set up a perimeter in the 4900 block of Springwood Circle where chaos erupted just after 1p.m. Monday afternoon.
"At first, I thought it was fireworks," said neighbor, Kevin Hanie. He lives right
next door to the suspected gunman. One of the bullets shot out his window. Another one came close to hitting him.
"They went on about 20 minutes, about 50-60 shots. Sounded like a high caliber powerful rifle," Hanie described.
As officers arrived on scene, they closed off the residential street. Nobody could come in or go out.
