Deschutes County Sheriff’S Deputies were called to a domestic dispute at a residence on Dawn Road in La PIne around 9:30 Monday night. Sheriff Larry Blanton says a man came out and fired at least two shots at the deputies. The deputies then fired several shots at the man before taking cover. For several hours, they attempted to establish communication with the man. “We called out our special operations team from the Sheriffs Office who took over negotiations and attempts to get the suspect to come out of the residence. At about 3 a.m we introduced gas into the residence, which caused the suspect to come out of the house. He was taken into custody, withut further incident and transported to St. Charles Hospital with a chest wound.” Blanton says they don't know if the wound came from a deputies gun or other means. The Sheriff has not released the name of the suspect that is now in custody, but Blanton says the investigation is continuing.
