Antioch police end one-man armed standoff with chemical agents

An armed suspect has been arrested in Antioch following a standoff with police that began Friday night.

Antioch police officers responded Friday at 11 p.m. to a report of shots fired at multiple addressed in the 2200 block of Mandarin Way.

Officers learned that Sudan Holland, 39, arrived at one of the residences and started acting paranoid and began firing shots inside the house, police said.

The shots also hit neighboring homes.

Officers were able to evacuate the residence and some neighboring homes and learned Holland was still armed inside, police said.

Antioch Police Department Antioch, Calif. police use the donated military tactical rescue vehicle to respond to a one-man armed standoff at a home on Mandarin Way on Friday, March 26, 2021.

After Holland repeatedly refused to surrender, the SWAT team deployed chemical agents through the bathroom door, and the suspect ultimately surrendered and was taken into custody.

Holland was taken to the hospital for treatment for the chemical exposure and was later arrested.
