ENTERPRISE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities worried that violence might result from a domestic dispute in a Wallowa Mountains community called in an Oregon State Police SWAT team, but secured a woman and her son before the team could get into action.

Wallowa County Sheriff Steve Rogers says a man reported armed with a handgun, shotgun and rifle made threats against his girlfriend and sheriff’s deputies.

He says the woman lives among a few dozen homes 20 to 25 miles south of Imnaha (im-NAH’-hah) in far northeast Oregon.

Rogers says the man returned early Tuesday and continued to make threats, so deputies closed in, at which point the man fled.

Rogers said the man was at large Tuesday but was not considered a threat to the broader community, so no search was underway.
