SWAT Team Gets Armed Man Out Safely

WHITE CITY, Ore. — A man who barricaded himself inside a home with a shot gun was taken into custody around 10:50 p.m. Friday.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and a SWAT team responded to a home near the intersection of highway 62 and Antelope Road.

Deputies surrounded the home around 9:00 p.m and tried to get the man out safely. They attempted to negotiate with the man through the phone and say he kept on hanging up. They say the man is suffering from several mental health issues. One of those illnesses is schizophrenia

The SWAT team created a perimeter and had the home lit. Antelope road is still closed as deputies clear that scene.

    Always glad to see cops using tactics to take suspects into custody without splattering brains all over the walls. When police and sheriffs act like 0003 Marines killing anything that moves and “asking God to sort the shi* out” we have bad outcomes.

    LEO’s, when properly trained hold all life precious and treat even the worst maggot, puke dirt bag with reasonable deference to 8A Rights
    When you encounter any cop that doesn’t treat you with the highest level of respect, I trust all will make the appropriate efforts to see such person disciplined, if not removed from duty. Also, to give out “attaboy’s” when appropriate.

    Brent you are semi correct with your response, but don’t put yourself in the shoes that you don’t have.

    Another unfortunate event showing the valley’s need for adequate and accessible mental health care.
