Tear gas forces wanted parolee to surrender to Sacramento police

A wanted parolee who had holed up in a north-area home has been taken into custody, according to authorities.

The man, identified as Marcus Chapman, 27, finally came out of the home, near Main Avenue and Marysville Boulevard, after Sacramento police deployed tear gas.

The SWAT team went to Chapman's house to arrest him because he is a parolee at large, said police Officer Laura Peck.

However, the man refused to come out of the house, Peck said. Backup officers arrived shortly thereafter.

Homes in the area were evacuated, said Sgt. Andrew Pettit.

Chapman finally surrendered about 4:30 p.m.
