(Clallam Bay) -- A Clallam Bay man is in custody after allegedly brandishing a firearm and threatening people during an argument Thursday.
Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputies and US Border Patrol agents responded to a residence on Highway 112 in Clallam Bay after a 9-1-1 call reported a man living at the house was armed with a handgun and threatening to shoot everyone there.
Upon arrival, Deputies and Border Patrol Agents contacted the suspect who was residing in a detached outbuilding.
After interviewing residents, investigators learned the suspect, identified as 25-year-old Taylor P. Hill, was allegedly brandished a handgun during an argument with household members about the treatment of his girlfriend.
During a search of the outbuilding in which Hill resides, Deputies discovered a black CO2 powered BB air gun, a replicate of the Colt Defender .45 caliber ACP handgun.
As a precautionary measure due the residences close proximity to the school, the Clallam Bay Schools were placed into lockdown for a short period of time until Deputies had secured the scene.
Hill was arrested and booked into the Clallam County for the crime of Assault in the Second Degree Domestic Violence and two outstanding misdemeanor arrest warrants.
The case is being forwarded to the Clallam County Prosecutor’s Office for a formal charging decision.
