At 8:57 p.m. on December 25, Eugene Police were called to a home in the 2200 block of Adams to check on the welfare of a woman at the address, who had possibly been assaulted by her boyfriend. The man had access to multiple firearms at the home. While police were responding, the suspect came out to his porch, yelling at officers. Eugene Police Patrol and Drone Team initially responded and then Crisis Negotiation Team was called out.
Due to the presence of firearms at the home, some residences in the nearby area were advised to shelter in place by a CENS message. Other residents in the home were evacuated. EPD SWAT and Eugene Springfield Fire were called out, due to safety concerns and for medical contingencies.
During the call, around 1:00 a.m. on December 26, the man fired at officers, and a police firearm was also discharged while police were taking rounds. There were no injuries to the suspect or officers from the shots fired.
At 1:44 a.m., the suspect was successfully detained with the aid of a K9. He was transported by medics to local hospital for treatment of a K9 bite and exposure to gas. There is no ongoing danger to the public from the incident.
Charges will be listed in an update later this morning.
Case number 23-19334
