10-Hour Barricade Ends Peacefully in the Fair Oaks Police District

Fair Oaks Police District – A man has peacefully surrendered following a nearly 10-hour barricade in the 13200 block of Ladybank Lane in the Fair Oaks Police District.

Officers responded to the home around 4 this morning after a report that 21-year-old Anthony Moaf was threatening to shoot and kill family members. He also threatened to shoot at responding officers. Two adult family members who were inside the home made it out safely and uninjured.

Officers began negotiating with Moaf who spoke to them on and off over the next 10 hours. About two hours in, officers heard what sounded like a gunshot coming from within the home. The shot did not appear to be directed at police, and no officers were injured. Negotiators remained in contact with him after the shot was heard.

Due to ongoing safety concerns, neighbors and people living in the immediate area were asked to shelter in place and stay away from doors and windows while officers were on scene.

Officers from numerous units responded to assist, and our police robot and gas grenades were also deployed after repeated commands to surrender were not followed.

We thank the community for their support and cooperation in staying indoors until this was resolved. We are glad this barricade ended peacefully and without injuries to anyone.

Moaf is being taken for a medical evaluation. He also faces charges for reckless handling of a firearm.
