A Five Corners man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly threatened to kill his neighbors and then threatened to kill police during a later standoff.

Clark County sheriff’s deputies responded at 11:05 a.m. to reports of a disturbance in the 9100 block of Northeast 68th Street. A 911 caller reported that John Jamison, 51, had threatened to retrieve a gun and kill two of his neighbors, according to a news release.

Deputies said they had probable cause to arrest Jamison on suspicion of two counts of felony harassment. But Jamison refused to come out of his house when he was informed he was under arrest and threatened to kill police if they approached, the sheriff’s office said.

At 1:50 p.m., deputies obtained a search warrant to enter Jamison’s house in order to arrest him, the news release states.

The Southwest Washington Regional SWAT Team responded and arrested Jamison after using a stun gun on him in his yard, according to the sheriff’s office.

Jamison was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center and later booked into the Clark County Jail, the news release states.
