Modesto Standoff Ended

Modesto Police have an unidentified man, who barricaded himself inside a home there, in custody after a four hour standoff with local SWAT teams yesterday.

So far, police do not know the reason why the man went to the extremes that he did as the police tried to coax him out.

Units responded to apparent gunshots heard in the area of the Entrada Avenue home around seven Friday morning. Later, police weren´t sure if the gunshots did occur. The man decided to come out at approximately 11:40, ending the standoff.

He was transported to the Stanislaus Behavioral Center where he is under observation.
