The suspect, Sammy Duran, remained at large Friday evening, but authorities said they have him contained in a Roseville neighborhood, said Lt. Cal Walstadt of the Roseville Police Department.
Roseville Police Department officials said Duran was barricaded in a house alone and officers were communicating with him by telephone.
Two Roseville Police Department officers were injured by shrapnel during a gun battle, Walstadt said.
The special agent, who was not identified, was shot about 3 p.m. while working with investigators from the Roseville Police Department to apprehend Duran, according to ICE.
Once officers made contact with Duran, shots were fired. The ICE agent was shot in the leg, Walstadt said.
The suspect, armed with an “assault-type rifle,” fled and again shot at authorities. Two officers were injured by shrapnel. They were taken to local hospitals, Walstadt said.
The agent was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition, the agency said.
