Suspect Surrenders After Standoff With Police

On Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at about 11:57 AM, Lincoln City Police responded to a reported disturbance and possible hostage situation at a residence in the 4900 block of SE Keel in Lincoln City. It was reported that several persons inside the residence had barricaded themselves inside a room away from a suspect who was threating to harm them with edged weapons. Once officers arrived, they made entry into the residence and the suspect had quickly retreated to an upstairs room and barricaded himself inside while threatening to kill officers if they came after him. The officers took the opportunity to escort the three victims out of the house to safety.

Officers secured the perimeter around the house as additional units from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office arrived to assist, including a certified crisis negotiator who began talking with the suspect. Nearby residents were asked to leave the area or shelter in place as the negotiator tried to talk the suspect, who was identified as 20-year-old Albert A. Fletemier Brown of Lincoln City, into peacefully surrendering. Additional resources were requested and members of Oregon State Police SWAT unit responded to the location. After briefing the OSP team on the situation, they took control of the scene and their crisis negotiator began talking with Fletemier Brown. At about 4:55 PM, after several hours of dialog with Fletemier Brown by both the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Negotiator and then the OSP Negotiation team, Fletemier Brown peacefully surrendered and was taken into custody without injury.

Lincoln City Police Officers transported Fletemier Brown to the Lincoln County Jail where he was lodged on the following charges: Attempted Kidnap in the second degree, Domestic Menacing, Domestic Harassment, Domestic Strangulation, two counts of Menacing, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Interfering with Police Officers.

The Lincoln City Police Department expressed thanks and gratitude to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the Oregon State Police SWAT unit for their valuable assistance in bringing this incident to a to a peaceful conclusion. They also thanked North Lincoln Fire & Rescue and Pacific West Ambulance for standing by during the incident to provide medical assistance if needed. LCPD also thanked all the neighbors affected or inconvenienced during the incident for their patience and understanding and allowing Law Enforcement to work to bring this incident to a peaceful conclusion without any injuries to the suspect, the public, or any officers.
