George Millican Road was closed at Highway 20
(Update: Deputies find verbal dispute, no weapon involved)
MILLICAN, Ore. (KTVZ) A report of an armed subject in the area of U.S. Highway 20 East and George Millican Road southeast of Bend prompted the call-out of Deschutes County sheriff's deputies and the agency's SWAT Team on Wednesday morning.
However, it turned out to be something of a false alarm, they said later.
The report prompted closure of access from Highway 20 to George Millican Road. Deputies urged the public to "please avoid the area until this situation is resolved."
About 15 minutes later, shortly after 11 a.m., the sheriff's office updated in a tweet that "two subjects involved in the dispute have been located and are now with deputies."
Wednesday afternoon, an update online said, "After an investigation at the scene, the initial reported information was found to be inaccurate.
"It was determined there was a verbal argument between the two parties. No weapon was involved and no crime was committed. Resources were offered to the parties."
