A multi-agency critical incident investigation is underway after a man engaged in a standoff with police Tuesday afternoon, according to the Stockton Police Department.

Police received a call at 1:03 p.m. Aug. 16 on a report of a woman being pistol-whipped by a man at a residence in the 9300 block of Fox Creek Drive in the Morada neighborhood, a police department release said.

When officers arrived at the scene, they located the woman at the house with visible head injuries, authorities said. The man ran out of the house with a firearm, jumped several fences, and went on a roof.

Authorities said that as the man came off of the roof, he was confronted by an officer with a firearm. The officer fired his weapon and the man ran to a front porch of a residence in the 9400 block of Lansdowne Drive.

The man was still armed with a firearm and a standoff with officers occurred, authorities said. During the standoff, the man ingested an unknown pill. After that, a "less lethal" weapon was fired, and a K9 was deployed to take the man into custody. Two firearms were located near the man.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. According to the news release, medical staff at the hospital reported that the man was alert and not struck by gunfire.

No officers were injured during this incident.

The Stockton Police Department is encouraging anyone with information to call the Investigations Division at (209) 937-8323.
