Klamath Falls, Ore. – Reports of a man with a gun triggered the partial evacuation of a Klamath Falls apartment complex this weekend.
Lieutenant Jack Daniel of the Klamath Falls Police Department says officers got a report of an armed man threatening people at the Granvue Apartments just after 7 Sunday night. “And upon our arrival we discovered a large amount of blood on the exterior door, as well as signs of a struggle in the hallway.”
Most of the complex was evacuated as a precaution.
“They just asked me to vacate,” explained neighbor Joseph Haynes. “Because there was a dude in there with a gun and there was blood on the wall. And they were telling them to vacate and stuff – it was pretty crazy.”
Police later discovered there was no gun involved.
“There had been a physical fight earlier in the afternoon,” said Lieutenant Daniel. “That had not been reported to law enforcement. And the blood on the exterior door was from that event.”
That fight is still under investigation, police will not release any further details.
Klamath Falls Police were assisted by Oregon State Police during the evacuation, and investigation.
