The warrants were served in the area of South McDowell Boulevard and McNeil Drive at around 4:30 a.m. today, a manager of the nearby Best Western Inn said. Federal agents and Petaluma police seemed to be winding down the operation at around 6 a.m., he said.
Guests at the Best Western Inn had been told to stay in their rooms but shortly after 6 a.m. were given the all clear to leave, the manager said. He said that gunshots could be heard from the hotel, and that several people were taken in ambulances, and another was airlifted from the area. The agents appeared to be serving the search warrant at a home behind the hotel, the manager said.
