SACRAMENTO (CBS13) - A suspect at the center of a standoff in Sacramento is under arrest. He's accused of shooting someone, then turning his gun on responding deputies.

On Saturday, Sacramento County Sheriff's Office deputies received the report of someone being shot. Deputies reportedly arrived at the scene, which is in the 9300 block of Appalachian Drive, and found a male who had been shot.
