SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A man who held off law enforcement agents from the
roof of an annex building near the San Diego FBI field office in Sorrento
Valley Sunday was taken into custody after almost six hours.

Multiple news agencies reported that William Durant, 36, of Lakeside,
was arrested and the standoff had ended.

The suspect showed up shortly after 11:30 a.m. at the federal agency's
offices at 10385 Vista Sorrento Parkway, climbed over the south side security
gate and attempted to gain access to the building through the front entrance,
according to FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth.

Foxworth said the suspect may have injured himself climbing over the fence.

When unable to enter the building, he walked to a parking garage on the

The suspect's motive was not known, Foxworth said.

FBI negotiators attempted to make contact at mid-afternoon as FBI agents
and a SWAT team, San Diego police and fire personnel waited on scene,
Foxworth said.
