Officers say their most dangerous calls tend to be 'domestic disputes' -- but they resolved this one

DAVID F. ASHTON - East Precinct officers, standing at a neighboring houses porch, keep careful watch on the suspects house while waiting for specially trained police arrive to try to defuse the situation. While most families in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood were relaxing after enjoying their Thanksgiving Day dinner, a potentially dangerous situation was developing in a house on S.E. 62nd Avenue near Clatsop Street.

East Precinct officers were called there at 7:46 p.m. by reports of threats of violence having been made by a resident against a young family member.

When officers arrived, they learned from neighbors which house the suspect was in, but all of the lights there had been turned off.

Because it had also been reported that a gun was in the house, officers with long guns and less-than-lethal weapons were called to the scene before "loud hailing" the home, seeking to get the suspect safely out of the residence.

At about 9:35 p.m., officers persuaded the individual to let them in and check the house, and after that the incident ended without incident. The suspect, a female, was transported by ambulance to a medical facility for evaluation and care.

Some officers stayed at the scene until about 10:15 p.m. to complete an investigation of the incident.
