Things are calm now, but around 2 p.m. Friday, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is called out to a residence on Dee Street in Madras after shots are heard coming from a trailer. Apparently an armed man had barricaded himself inside his residence. Police evacuated and quarantined the neighborhood for several hours as they attempted to establish communication with the man. The Oregon State Police Swat Team was deployed, but contact could not be made. Police determine the man to be Geraldo Antiono Arreola, 19, of Madras. Around 8:30 p.m., police obtained a warrant and entered the residence to find Arreola dead.  The police will continue to investigate the incident, but they believe no other persons were involved and the public is safe.
