The name of the second man arrested after a standoff in the North Natomas area last night was released today by Sacramento police.
The standoff ended after two men who had been holed up inside a condominium surrendered to law enforcement officers.
Sacramento County sheriff's detectives tracked a wanted parolee, identified today as Kiyen Matthews, 33, to the unit in the 2100 block of Club Center Drive about 3:30 p.m.. When he refused detectives' orders to come out of the residence, they called for assistance from the Sacramento Police Department's SWAT and hostage negotiations teams.
Sacramento police spokeswoman Officer Michele Gigante said a woman who came out of the unit about 3:45 p.m. verified that Matthews was inside, along with another man. Gigante said it was believed the men were armed.
At no time was there a hostage situation, she said.
Matthews and Daniel Wilson, 28, came out of the residence and surrendered about 6:15 p.m., and both were taken into custody. Gigante said two guns were found inside the residence.
Wilson was arrested and later booked on a parole violation, according to police. Matthews was booked on a parole violation and several warrants.
Residents of several nearby units were evacuated as a safety precaution during the standoff.
