Man in serious condition after standoff on Oregon Coast

LINCOLN CITY, OR (KPTV) -

After a day-long standoff in Lincoln City, a man accused of killing his grandparents in the Seattle area has been taken into police custody.

Officers breached the West Shore Motel room with Michael "Chadd" Boysen, 26, inside around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said he was on the floor with visible injuries. Investigators determined they were self-inflicted cut or stab wounds. Boysen did not show aggression or resist arrest and seemed more concerned with his wounds.

Boysen was taken to the hospital for treatment. He's listed in serious condition.

Police first surrounded the West Shore Motel, located at 3127 Anchor Ave., Tuesday morning. Investigators said Boysen checked in under his real name there Monday night.

"It's very scary that he was able to do that and be in the hotel with us," said Steve Ride, who was staying at the motel. "I'm just very shocked."

Police evacuated the other motel rooms Tuesday morning, along with homes in the area.

"Here was a guy, checked in the night before, walking around our neighborhood, (he) just killed his grandparents. It's just so weird to have someone like that so close to you," said Monty Langford, who lives nearby.

Boysen was wanted for the alleged murder of his grandparents - an 82-year-old man and 80-year-old woman - at their home in Renton, WA.

Police said Boysen was released from prison Friday night and his grandparents threw him a party to welcome him home. They were found dead the following day.

Boysen had most recently been in prison for a robbery conviction, but investigators said he has a lengthy rap sheet including six felony convictions going back to when he was a teenager.
