CANYONVILLE, Ore. — The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said that a suspect is in custody after deputies responded to "reports of gunfire" at a home in Canyonville on Wednesday morning, leading to an apparent standoff.

Deputies responded to several reports of shots fired from a house in the 400-block of SW Fourth Place in Canyonville, across from the Pioneer-Indian Museum. Officers from multiple jurisdictions were on the scene, assisting DCSO.

"Residents in the area are being asked to lock themselves inside their homes," the agency said before noon on Wednesday. "This is an active scene and the public and media are being asked to avoid the area for the safety of the community and law enforcement."

At 3:40 p.m., the Sheriff's Office said that it had taken a suspect into custody and "the situation is under control." The agency said it would release more information later.

I-5 was initially closed to all southbound traffic at milepost 99 near Canyonville due to the ongoing law enforcement presence, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). It later opened for one lane, before ODOT announced after 5:30 p.m. that the freeway was opened back up completely.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
