A Deer Park man has been taken into custody following a standoff with the Spokane Co. SWAT team at a trailer park in the 300 block of South Fir.
Officials report the man had allegedly assaulted a trailer park owner and another tenant with a baseball bat and then went back to his trailer and barricaded himself inside.
Negotiators attempted to talk the suspect out of the trailer but a loud bang was heard, followed by a Deer Park ambulance driving up to the trailer.
The suspect, 70-year-old Michael Martin, was taken into custody and arrested on felony assault charges.
