SWAT team standoff in neighborhood near South Medford High School

MEDFORD, Ore. — One person is in police custody following a multi-hour standoff in Medford.

For almost seven hours Tuesday evening, the neighborhood on Warren Way was in the middle of a standoff between at least one person and police. It started around 1:00 p.m.

Police ultimately took one man into custody. They told NBC5 News tear gas was used to flush him out of the bathroom of a home.

Police will not confirm if the suspect was armed. They also have not released his identity or the reason for his arrest.

There was a perimeter around the home and a couple of neighboring homes, where residents were asked to stay back. Warren Way has since reopened.
