Oregon State Police and other police agencies negotiated for hours with the ex-boyfriend holding his ex-girlfriend hostage at a Crescent Lake cabin. Just before 5 p.m., Alberto Martinez, 28,  left the cabinusing Melody Mickel, 26, as a human shield. OSP SWAT team fired one shot at Martinez,  causing a non-life threatening injury, and allowing the release of hostage Mickel. Police believe the Mickel was kidnapped by Martinez, her ex-boyfriend last Thursday while she was working at Rite Aid. Earlier Tuesday, she and Martinez were barricaded in her grandparents cabin in Crescent Lake, while negotiators tried to convince him to let her go.  During the standoff, her cousin, Angela Goring, who lives in Redmond, just wanted Melody out of that house.  “She is so strong keeps her head when things get rough. She's a survivor. She will survive.” Goring claims Martinez is a registered sex offender who kidnapped another former girlfriend nine years ago, and was charged with kidnapping and sexual assault charges.
