Man fires shots at neighbor, prompts SWAT standoff in Clark County

VANCOUVER, Wash. – A Clark County man fired at least three shots at his neighbor Tuesday afternoon, prompting a standoff with a SWAT team that continued into the evening, the sheriff’s office said.

A person called 911 just before 3 p.m. to report that James Froehilc fired the shots during a dispute. No one was hurt. 

Clark County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene, 10419 NE 50th Ave., and said Froehilc came out of his house armed with a rifle. After a brief standoff he dropped the gun and retreated into his home.

A SWAT team responded to the neighborhood worked to contact Froehilc, who was wanted for first-degree assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and felony harassment. Police announced just before 8 p.m. he was taken into custody without incident.
