ALOHA, Ore. -- Deputies ended a standoff peacefully after firing tear gas into an Aloha apartment and sending in a tactical team to arrest a suspect Friday.

Luther Alspach, 59, was taken into custody after deputies were called to the Country Woods apartments at Southwest 177th and Southwest Shaw Street for a domestic disturbance call.

Deputies said Alspach was wanted on a warrant and he barricaded himself inside the apartment.

They were also told he possibly had several weapons, and after Alspach broke off communications, Deputies fired tear gas into the apartment and a tactical team went in and arrested him.
