LYMAN – An incident on Wednesday, June 5, on the corner of West Owen and Platts in Lyman was a “misunderstanding…and miscommunication,” according to Lyman Police Chief Tom Clark.
A report had been received about 6:30 p.m. that a male adult was making threats with a firearm, Clark said. The incident turned out to be a “misunderstand,” Clark reiterated. He said the wife had talked to a neighbor. There were a dispute between the husband and wife.
Clark said the street was blocked off, and officers were on the scene with guns drawn. After the husband was contacted within the home, he appeared on the porch, unarmed and hands raised. The investigation determined no threats had been made, Clark said.
The husband “relinquished his firearms,” Clark said, and picked them up from the Police Department three days later.
Clark declined to name the people involved due to the nature of the incident. He said the department world rather “err on the side of caution” when it came to the safety of residents.
