“I am thankful for the great cooperation by all agencies involved in this incident. The department focuses on de-escalation first, but when those efforts fail have a trained and capable team of law enforcement officers to bring these incidents to a safe conclusion,” Ottawa Police Chief Adam Weingartner said.
