A man found dead Saturday evening after a six-hour SWAT call was identified by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office on Monday as Doug Anthony Stuart, 41, of Vancouver.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence in the 8000 block of Northeast 100th Circle about 12:30 p.m. A woman had left the house and later called 911 for deputies to check on the man, Sgt. Fred Neiman said.

The woman told deputies that her husband had made suicidal threats, assaulted her and threatened her with a firearm.

Deputies arrived but didn’t get a response. SWAT was called in.

Around 6 p.m., SWAT officers found Stuart dead inside a camper behind the home.

He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Neiman said.
