The Clackamas County sheriff’s office says a SWAT team shot a suicidal man who was armed with a gun early Monday at a home in the southwestern part of the county.

The sheriff’s office says dispatchers were called Sunday night with a report the man was armed and making threats.

Negotiators and the SWAT team tried to resolve the situation, but the sheriff’s office says the man was shot about 2 a.m. “due to his actions.”

He was taken to a hospital with injuries that appear to be non-life-threatening.

Other residents had been evacuated and no one else was hurt.
