Update: Hood River Police Take Suspect Into Custody

The Hood River Police Department says they have taken the individual involved in a shooting incident in Hood River early this afternoon into custody.
A statement on social media from the HRPD at 9:40 p.m. said the male suspect was taken into custody safely with the help of multiple surrounding law enforcement agencies to bring this incident to a close.
The person’s name and other details have not yet been released.

The HRPD said residents who live in the affected area and were asked to evacuate can return home.

Police responded at around noon to a call about a dangerous situation at a private residence near Viento Lane and Clearwater Lane.
When officers tried to make contact, an individual in the house fired multiple shots.
Police were able to contain the person in the house, and evacuated surrounding businesses and residences, while schools in the lower Hood River Valley were placed on secure status for a time.
A Special Weapons and Tactics team from Clackamas County was brought in, with loud distraction devices and tear gas deployed to attempt to bring the man out of the home.
