UPDATE: SWAT Standoff Ends In Northeast Spokane

Posted: Updated:
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Monday, September 17, 2012, at 4:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a suicidal call near the 17500 block of East Sprague Ave. Deputies were advised the adult male had been making threats to harm himself to family members and that he was in an irrational state of mind.
 
When deputies arrived on scene they located the male subject sitting inside his pickup truck with the windows rolled up. The only other information deputies had was that the male possibly had a handgun with him inside the truck.
 
Deputies quickly secured the scene and ensured the safety of the neighbors by contacting all the homes in the immediate area and requesting residents stay inside.
 
Since the subject was barricaded, and possibly armed, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team's armored vehicle, "The Bearcat", was requested and utilized at the scene by members of the SWAT Team that had responded to the call. Spokane County Sheriff's office hostage negotiators also responded to the scene.
 
At approximately 5:30 p.m., the male subject fell out of the truck onto the ground. Deputies made sure the male was not armed and requested medics. Medics provided aid to the subject at the scene, then transported him to a local medical facility. The male did not make any threats to anyone but himself and will not be facing any criminal charges. Deputies did locate a .45 caliber handgun inside the vehicle.

ORIGINAL STORY:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane man was arrested Monday night after a SWAT standoff in the 3900 block of North Crestline.

Officers responded to a home around 9:30 PM for a report of a fight that possibly involved a gun. A woman said she got in a fight with her boyfriend and that he hit her with a board. Another person was also hit as they tried to intervene. Everyone left the house except for the man.

After multiple attempts to get him out of the house, armed officers and a K9 unit entered the home just before 11:00 PM. The K9 was able to find him hiding in a crawl space. He has been identified as Isaac Carloss, 32.

Officers did recover a bb gun but no other weapons. Carloss is now facing charges of two 2 counts of 2nd degree assault and one count of felony harassment.

Two people were taken to an area hospital to be checked out.

The incident remains under investigation.
