FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) — UPDATE: The barricaded suspect has been arrested. FOX26 was LIVE on air with drone video as officers stormed into the building and captured the man.
According to the Fresno Police Department, an off-duty officer saw a Hispanic man in his 20s walking around the area with a large metal stick and acting erratic.
The man then went to a parking garage, before barricading himself inside of the post office using a metal broomstick.
