Suspect in attempted homicide arrested near Placerville

A man wanted by the Concord Police Department was arrested early this morning after his vehicle was spotted on Highway 50 near Placerville.

The El Dorado County sheriff's dispatch center was notified to be on the lookout for Doran Long, 50, who was described as armed and dangerous, according to a Sheriff's Department news release. He was suspected of discharging a firearm in an inhabited building and attempted homicide. The notice stated that he was last seen driving a 1999 red Toyota Tacoma pickup.

At 5:40 a.m., a sheriff's deputy located the vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 50 in the Placerville area. The deputy followed the vehicle until other sheriff's deputies were in position to make a felony stop.

Long was taken into custody at 5:46 p.m. During the arrest, officials said, Long refused to comply with deputies' commands. A sheriff's K-9 assisted in the apprehension and Long was bitten in the process.

Long was transported to Marshall Hospital for medical clearance, then booked into El Dorado County Jail with bail is set at $2 million.

His vehicle was towed and will be searched for evidence, officials said.
