EL GRANADA -- A phone call to authorities from an El Granada man wanted in connection with a Vallejo shooting led to his arrest Wednesday, police said.

Deputies took 19-year-old Samuel Turner, who had sparked a nearly seven-hour police standoff Tuesday, into custody about 11:05 a.m. at an apartment on the 400 block of Coronado Street, San Mateo County Sheriff's Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

Police surrounded the Coronado Street home Tuesday after learning Turner was there. About 3 p.m., officers got a warrant to enter the home and unsuccessfully tried to contact Turner.

Officers camped out around the home until they entered it at 9:40 p.m. and realized Turner wasn't there. He later returned to the house and called 911 Wednesday morning, which prompted deputies to go arrest him, Rosenblatt said.

Turner apparently was wanted in connection with a Monday shooting that left an 18-year-old man wounded after an argument. However, Vallejo police didn't immediately respond to a call seeking confirmation.
