called 911 to report Jason Ames (DOB 2/20/88) was threatening to shoot him.
While Schwanke was on the line with the dispatcher, shots were fired. Schwanke
ran from the area and was uninjured. Deputies immediately responded to the area
with the assistance of a Seaside Police Sergeant. The events occurred on Bear
Rd. near the Elderberry Inn in the Elsie area.
Deputies surrounded the Ames residence until daylight. The
residence was called and Ames surrendered to Sheriff’s Deputies peacefully.
Eight empty .22 caliber shell cases were recovered on Bear Rd. near the Ames
residence. Also seized was the semi-automatic rifle and ammunition used during
the shooting. Ames was lodged in the Clatsop County Jail and charged with
Menacing and Unlawful Use of a Firearm. Additional charges may be filed later.
