BEND, OR -- Bend Police shut down access to the area around SE Second and Scott Street, Thursday, after reports that an armed subject had barricaded himself inside a business. Lt. Clint Burleigh says the initial call came in at about 9:45 a.m. He would not release many details due to the ongoing nature of the situation, but tells KBND News, "We don't believe anybody else is inside the business so we're trying to work for a peaceful resolution, right now."

 

Employees at a nearby business tell KBND News they are in lockdown; they believe the subject is inside Bend Oil.  Lt. Burleigh says, "These kinds of calls, we want to make sure that the neighborhoods are safe, make sure our officers are safe, make sure that the person that we're dealing with is safe; I mean, that's the ultimate goal that everyone stays safe."

 

A command center is set up at Vince Genna Stadium about a half mile away. KBND News will continue to follow this developing situation and will release more information as it becomes available. 

 

THURSDAY P.M. UPDATE: Lt. Burleigh says the man was later found deceased inside the business at 33 SE Scott Street. When the first call came in to 911, the reporting person said the subject was known to the business and had walked in with a firearm, intoxicated. 

 

His death was not considered suspicious and Lt. Burleigh declined to release further details of the incident.
