Update on Standoff in The Dalles

According to OSP Lieutenant Pat Shortt, at approximately 8:25 a.m., Wasco County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at 1100 Mt. Hood St., in The Dalles, to serve civil papers on the resident living there. As deputies knocked on the door gunshots were heard from within and deputies fell back and requested additional police to respond. Officers arriving at the scene created a perimeter and attempted negotiations with the occupant. Shortly thereafter, smoke began to come from inside the residence. Lieutenant Shortt said deputies/officers do not have any information/evidence to indicate that more than a single person is present in the residence however, officers have not been able to speak with the occupant at any point during this incident. The Oregon State Police Arson/Explosives Section has arrived on scene to assist with the investigation. The Fire Department is standing by to assist with Fire Suppression when it is safe to do so.
