Weekend Standoff in Prineville Ends Peacefully

PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 42-year-old Prineville man remains in the Crook County jail, following a weekend assault and standoff. Police responded to a domestic incident on Southeast Lynn Boulevard, late Saturday. Responding officers learned the suspect left in a pickup with multiple firearms, and had made threats against law enforcement. 

During a high risk traffic stop at Lynn and Melrose, police say Joshua Shane got out of the vehicle and pulled a gun from his waistband. He refused to put the gun down, retreating to a nearby property as Police, Sheriff’s Deputies, State Troopers and members of Central Oregon CERT tried to negotiate with him. Residents evacuated to a nearby church during the four-hour ordeal. 

Eventually, the standoff ended peacefully and Shane was arrested for Disorderly Conduct, Strangulation Constituting Domestic Violence, and an outstanding warrant from Deschutes County.
