UPDATE: SPD has confirmed the suspect, 42-year-old Douglas Lampi was safely taken into custody. Neither the suspect, nor officers were injured.

The people who own the home are family members of Lampi, and are currently out of town. They called to report that he was inside their home and did not have permission to be there.

SPD responded to a similar incident with Lampi in September of 2017, at the same home.

When officers arrived and tried to make contact with Lampi, he did not reply to any phone calls or verbal announcements.

Because it was known that he had access to weapons inside the home, and was not complying with orders, SWAT was called in and people in the area were told to remain inside.

A member of the Spokane Police Hostage Negotiation Team was also on scene, continually trying to make contact with the suspect.

Eventually, a search warrant was obtained, and a door to the inside of the home was breached. According to the Spokane Police, Lampi was then arrested as he climbed out of a basement window.

He was booked into jail for Residential Burglary Domestic Violence. The Domestic Violence was added because of his relation to the homeowners.

Original Story:

SWAT crews, Spokane Police officers, and hostage negotiators are on the scene of what they’re calling an occupied burglary situation on the 7000 block of S. Moran View St. in Spokane.

The suspect is still inside the home and is not cooperating with negotiators.

Spokane Police officer Laiva confirms there is no one inside the home with the suspect, but he does have access to firearms. They’re asking people to avoid the area, and people who live in the area to stay inside.

Police say they have responded to a ‘similar incident’ at the home recently, and that the suspect is somehow related to the people who own the home.
