Two in custody after standoff in Beaverton
BEAVERTON, Ore. - There was no assault rifle, but there were a knife and a paintball gun.
A condominium on SW 96th Ave. was surrounded by SWAT team members in fatigues and K-9 units for several hours early Thursday morning, with two suspects taken into custody after the standoff.
The incident began when police received a call from a man saying his male roommate had threatened him with an AR-15 and a knife.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the suspect's girlfriend and removed her from the apartment. Her story differed from that of the man who called the police.
Officers got in touch with the suspect on the phone at 2:25 a.m., and finally talked him out of the building just before 5 a.m. Scott Adams, 27, was charged with menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and harassment.
Once police got inside the condo, they found Scott Adams' brother - Charles Adams - and charged him with menacing and harassment after determining he was involved in the original incident.
As it turned out the knife was quite real, but the assault rifle turned out to be a paintball gun.
