After police entered the home, they found the three suspects inside the attic. Christian Macedo was wanted for attempted homicide and Cesar Macedo for parole violations.

Police then called Tehama County Interagency SWAT to assist with the arrest of Cesar Macedo.

After hours of standoff, police entered the residence assisted with 12 canisters of gas.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident. Police warn Alexander Macedo is to be considered armed and dangerous.
