Brassard reportedly refused to exit his vehicle after being contacted by officers. Due to the fact Brassard may have been armed with a gun, police said additional resources were brought in including a crisis negotiator.

After negotiations, Brassard surrendered and was taken into custody.

An investigation showed shots were fired into a home at the location and also fired from inside the home into the neighborhood where several bullets hit a nearby home, shattering a window. Police said the shooting occurred between acquaintances.

No one was injured in the exchange of gunfire. Police said officers recovered two handguns.

Brassard was booked into the Clackamas County Jail for attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, and menacing.

The investigation is ongoing, and no other details have been released at this time.
