A suspect accused of shooting four officers as he tried to avoid arrest finally surrendered this morning after a nine-hour standoff with police in Roseville, Calif., reports NBC News. A police robot sent into the house urging him to give up may have helped seal the deal. All of the officers—a federal immigration officer and three local cops—are expected to recover, reports CNN. Samuel Duran, 32, is under arrest.

The violence started yesterday afternoon when authorities tracked down the wanted parolee at a residence, and a shootout and chase on foot ensued. The officer from the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement got shot in the leg, one police officer got shot in the jaw and another in the shoulder, and a third got hit with shrapnel. Duran eventually holed up in a local home whose occupants got out safely, notes AP. Police sent in the robot about 11pm, and Duran gave up an hour or so later, reports CBS Sacramento.
