Police Arrest Man After 3-Hour Portland Standoff


Police fired tear gas into a Portland airport hotel room early Thursday to end a three-hour standoff with a man who refused to leave the room and was suspected of being armed.

Neighboring rooms at the Travelodge hotel were evacuated shortly after midnight and a street was closed as the Special Emergency Reaction Team moved in.

Officers fired tear gas about 3:45 a.m. and the 34-year-old man surrendered.
