Subject found deceased after standoff in Salmon Creek

Scene was treated as a standoff with a barricaded subject according to Clark County Sheriff’s Office report

VANCOUVER — The subject of a standoff that began Tuesday evening in Salmon Creek was found deceased in a residence at the 15300 block of NE 10th Avenue, according to information provided by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Just after 7 p.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to a disturbance after a woman called in to report a disturbance with her boyfriend, which had lasted most of the day.  Two deputies responded and made contact with the woman down the street, and learned she had been assaulted.

The two deputies then went to the residence to attempt contact and possibly arrest the suspect.  As the deputies approached, they heard gunshots come from within the residence and then retreated.  Southwest Washington Regional SWAT was activated and responded.

The scene was treated as a standoff with a barricaded subject.  SWAT was able to make entry into the residence and found the subject deceased.  No further information or names will be released at this time. Notifications to family still need to be made.
