Ten Washington County law enforcement officers are on leave after they fired their weapons in response to a domestic disturbance in a Hillsboro police officer’s home on Sunday.

Jim Redden, a reporter at the Hillsboro Tribune, says he has not confirmed all the details of the incident, but it appears that the initial call to police indicated that there was a hostage situation underway. Hillsboro police officer Timothy Cannon’s wife apparently made the 911 call, and she and Cannon’s six-year-old daughter may have been in the house when the swat team showed up. One officer and Cannon were injured in the incident. Redden says by all accounts, the 13-year veteran was well-respected with no history of domestic abuse or other violence.
