Additional calls to dispatch indicating that more gunshots were heard in the area. Callers were able to identify the residence where it was believed the shots were coming from as 2322 Birch Street, Live Oak. The Sutter County Special Enforcement Detail (SWAT) was called out and responded to the area.
