Suspect involved in standoff in Kings County identified

Kings County, CA (KFSN)-Leading authorities in a series of follow-ups through two counties, learning more about a man accused of assaulting a member of Tulare County lawmakers.

The suspect has been identified as Adan Hernandez.

Tulare County investigators first began chasing him to Hanford on Monday afternoon.

During the incident, he accelerated to defeat Tulare County’s adjutant as they tried to pull the suspect out of his car.

The chase continued through Kings County, and at some point Hernandez returned to Hanford’s patrol vehicle.

The chase finally ended when Hernandez lost control on a dirt field near Highway 43.

This led to an hour of standoffs as the Kings County SWAT team deployed chemicals to surrender him.

Hernandez refused and ran out of car as a K-9 policeman chased him.

Authorities said the suspect tried to dig out the dog’s eyes, firing a non-lethal bullet and hitting his leg.

Hernandez was eventually detained and is currently facing several accusations, including assault with deadly weapons.

No police officer, agent, or K-9 police officer was injured in the incident.
