Reports of armed man leads to large police response in Browne’s addition.
On 09-05-19 shortly after 1am, SPD received a report of a subject in the 2100 block of W Pacific Ave pointing a gun at a citizen. SPD units began arriving in the area, and were met by other citizens reporting similar behavior; there was a male subject yelling and walking around the neighborhood threatening people with a firearm.
SPD patrol officers including on-duty SWAT personnel responded to the area. Using patrol cars as well as an armored vehicle (Bearcat) about two dozen officers systematically scoured the neighborhood for almost two hours looking for the male. The suspect, who is described as a white male in his 50s, bald or balding, wearing jeans and a white shirt or shirtless, was not located.
Anyone who was threatened by the subject or has information about his identity is asked to call SPD at 509-456-2233, and reference incident #2019-20169107.
