KEIZER, OR (KPTV) -

A suspect considered armed and dangerous was found dead by police after he barricaded himself in a Keizer apartment for several hours overnight.

Following a standoff that started with a report of a vehicle-pedestrian collision at 8 p.m. Thursday, officers entered an apartment adjacent to River Road North on Sandy Drive North with a search warrant and discovered the man’s body at 1 a.m. Friday.

No one else was inside the apartment.

Police said the man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was identified Friday afternoon as 65-year-old Calvin Lloyd Macy. Police said he had two state-wide felony warrants on charges of public indecency and failure to appear for unlawful possession of methamphetamine. 

Investigators said Macy had a long criminal history in Oregon dating back as far as 1969, including a murder conviction. 

Before Macy's death, officers attempted to establish communication with him after police said he ran into the apartment following witness reports that he had been hit by a car while running across a street.

During the standoff hours, police learned the man had multiple felony warrants and the Salem Police Department SWAT & Negotiations Team continued attempts to establish communication with Macy with no response. 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Detective Ben Howden at howdenb@keizer.org or 503-390-3713 ext. 3525.
