FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — A 32-year-old Rio Vista man has been booked into the Solano County Jail in Fairfield in connection with a two-plus-hour standoff with police Sunday afternoon at a Cordelia convenience store.
Police said Matthew Vickers was in a nearby fast-food restaurant just before noon Sunday when police were told a man there, later identified as Vickers, was “manipulating” what appeared to be two firearms. They later proved to be replica handguns.READ MORE: Former Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Touts Basic Income at Mountain View Rally
Vickers left the restaurant before police arrived, and went to a nearby convenience store at the corner of Pittman Road and Central Way in Cordelia. Officers went to the store, where the clerk told them a man who had been acting suspiciously went into the bathroom.
Police made sure no one else was in the store, and then worked for more than two hours to convince the man to come out.READ MORE: National Park Service Proposes Parking Fees at Popular Bay Area Beaches
