A man who allegedly barricaded himself inside a Fairfield home and threatened residents with a firearm Tuesday has been booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Police responded to reports of a disturbance just before 1:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Cormorant Court, Fairfield police Lt. Stephen Crane said. Callers told police a family member was damaging property and threatening residents with a firearm, according to Crane.
Responding officers were able to get the residents safely out of the house, but the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Gordon Johnson, allegedly barricaded himself inside the home. The Fairfield Police Department’s Crisis Negotiation Team along with the department’s SWAT team responded to the incident and repeatedly attempted to contact Johnson, but he refused to come out, Crane said.
At about 8:30 p.m., the department’s SWAT team took Johnson into custody inside the home. Johnson was uncooperative and resisted arrest, according to Crane. Johnson was transported to the Solano County Jail where he was booked on suspicion of assault with a firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
