Aberdeen standoff comes to an end in eighteenth hour

Aberdeen standoff

The standoff in South Aberdeen came to a peaceful end Wednesday afternoon. In the eighteenth hour negotiators were able to talk 54 year old Michael Watson out of the home with a Washington State Patrol robot. He was seen briefly by Aberdeen medics before being taken into custody. Aberdeen Officer Schmidt tells us “The State Patrol sent in their robot, it has a camera, with a microphone on it, they were able to talk him out. He is in custody, as far as I know nobody’s hurt, he’s not injured, he’s being checked by the aid unit and will be transported to the Aberdeen Police Department.

The man barricaded himself in a home on Harding street Tuesday evening. Officers first responded around 8 P.M. after reports that he was shooting a handgun in the area. An Aberdeen officer reported seeing him enter the home in the 2000 block of Harding Road with a weapon. A Washington State Patrol SWAT team took over the standoff around 10 Wednesday morning, with about the same result until sending in a robot around 2, he walked out just after 2:30 that afternoon.
