Wilson says the D.A.'s office has also filed two counts of false imprisonment, one count of residential burglary and two counts of making criminal threats against Duran in connection with the family who lives in a Hampton Drive house where the suspect was barricaded.
Duran also faces possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon charges and other weapons allegations, Wilson said.
Duran did not enter a plea at his arraignment in Placer County Superior Court. He was appointed a public defender.
With two previous felony strike convictions, if found guilty of the new charges, Duran faces the possibility of life in prison.
Duran is in Placer County Jail on a no bail hold. His next court appearance was set for Friday, Nov. 1.
