SAN RAMON, Calif.- A man has been arrested after shooting a locksmith who was helping authorities serve him an eviction notice.
Two Contra Costa officers knocked on the man's door around 2 p.m. on Wednesday to serve the notice, but no one answered. A locksmith then started drilling the door knob, when a gun shot was fired through the door, hitting the locksmith in the leg.
After a four hour stand off with the police in a gated San Ramon community, authorities say the man finally surrendered.
Reports say the 1.6 million dollar home was in foreclosure.
The locksmith was taken to a hospital to treat his injuries.
