Reported Suicidal Female Arms Herself to Confront Responding Officers - 04/05/19

On April 5, 2019, at 2:07pm, the Newberg-Dundee Police Department received a report of a suicidal female who claimed to have shot herself with a firearm in the 500 block of Michelle Ct. in Newberg.  Officers responded to render the scene safe as medical and mental health personnel staged nearby.

On approach to the residence, officers encountered an adult female emerge from a second story window in possession of multiple rifles.  Officers took cover, evacuated nearby residents, and attempted to communicate with the female.  Despite multiple commands to stop reaching for the rifles, the suspect continued to endanger both citizens and officers from an elevated position.  40mm sponge projectiles were deployed in an attempt to stop the threatening behavior from the female. 

Once the female was incapacitated by the less lethal rounds, officers moved in to take her into custody.  She was then transported to the hospital for injuries sustained during the incident as well as a mental health evaluation.  Information that the female had shot herself was unfounded.

Several firearms were found inside the residence that appeared to have been strategically staged throughout.  The female has thus far been charged with Menacing and Disorderly Conduct.  Detectives from the Yamhill County Major Crimes Response Team were activated and are investigating.

The name of the involved female will not be released at this time.
