A man suspected of pointing a rifle at emergency responders as they arrived at the scene of a house fire in Buena Park Sunday surrendered to authorities early Monday morning, police said.
Edgar Salazar was seen pointing a scoped rifle at first responders and a police helicopter as he stood on a roof near a fire burning at a home in the 7700 block of 11th street, the Buena Park Police Department stated on Facebook.
Salazar then fled from the roof and disappeared, prompting SWAT officers to surround the residence he was believed to have barricaded himself in.
Meanwhile, firefighters worked to put out the blaze burning at the nearby home.
A man rescued from the home suffered second- and third-degree burns and was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.
Following an hours-long standoff, Salazar eventually surrendered and was taken into custody with no shots fired at about 1:33 a.m., the Police Department stated.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation.
