Man accused in East Bakersfield standoff accepts plea deal


A man arrested last December following a standoff with sheriff’s deputies in East Bakersfield took a plea deal Friday.

Marcos Gutierrez got into a domestic dispute, shot a woman, then barricaded himself in a home on Burnett Drive near Virginia Avenue County Park.

The woman was seriously wounded, but survived. Gutierrez was later arrested.

On Friday, he pleaded no contest to assault with a firearm and for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Gutierrez is scheduled for sentencing April 17.
