Reports on March 27, of a shooting in Davis escalated to a police standoff ending in tragedy several hours later.  Police, SWAT, and a Bomb Squad were surrounding a home on Glacier Drive as of early Friday morning, and a regional team composed of Davis, Sacramento, West Sacramento, and Woodland law enforcement with two armored vehicles (including the one given to Woodland by Davis) stormed the home at 1am following a robot that forcibly entered the home.  The Sacramento Bee is reporting that two bodies were found, according to Lt. Thomas Waltz.  Video of Waltz reporting on the situation can be found here on YouTube (possibly as it stood at 2:20am, as the Enterprise states that he had a press conference at that time).
