SAN FRANCISCO — A five-hour standoff that ended in the shooting death of a rifle-wielding man in Pleasant Hill was too dangerous to involve his father, who came to the scene and pleaded with police to let him talk to his son, authorities said Monday.
Renardo Flores, 32, was shot and killed shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday after holing up in his home and that of a neighbor on Audrey Lane near the Sunvalley Mall and repeatedly firing at officers trying to flush him out, said Pleasant Hill police Lt. Dan Connelly.
