UPDATE - An Oroville man is dead after investigators with the Butte County Sheriff's Office say he came out of a home, firing at law enforcement.

At about 3:10 a.m. the Oroville Police Department (OPD) got a call from a resident at the 700 block of Pomona Ave. claiming that shots were fired at their neighbor’s residence.

OPD arrived at the house shortly after and they could not access the residence, because the patio gate was locked, and without further information, officers left.

Thirty minutes later OPD got another call from the original caller, but this time they saw a smoke alarm going off at the same house where shots were heard, but officers still could not contact the residents. 

At 4:24 a.m. another report of gunshots came in, but for a third time officers had no leads, according to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO).

More than an hour later at 5:41 a.m., a woman called authorities about a call she got from her sister, she apparently told officials that her sister was being held at gunpoint inside a house and was asking her to pick up her two young children who were inside the home.

BCSO was called to assist OPD after they noticed a bullet hole in the front window of the home, something that was not there previously.

Authorities set up a perimeter to determine what the situation was and how to contact the residents inside, according to BCSO.

At 7:54 a.m. a man identified as Larry Siordia, 33, of Oroville exited the home with a pistol on his hand, a minute later he began shooting at law enforcement, who were in front of the home, said BCSO.

BCSO said one bullet from the pistol allegedly used by Siordia struck a BCSO patrol car where three officers were taking cover and multiple other rounds were found throughout the neighborhood.

BCSO officials said one of their Sergeants then fired a single shot at an unknown part of Siordia’s body, ultimately killing him.

Medical personnel was nearby to help Siordia, but he later died at Oroville Hospital, according to BCSO.

Further information about the case will be released by the Butte County District Attorney’s Office when the investigation is complete.
