Armed standoff in Merlin, OR continues

Grant Pass Daily Courier

MERLIN — State police urged people to stay away from a location in downtown Merlin shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday because of an armed standoff.

An OSP spokesman said that they attempted to serve a search warrant at 126 Galice Road and the person barricaded himself inside the residence. More details were not available.  

People are urged to avoid the area by a half mile in each direction. The location is in the heart of Merlin, between Pleasant Valley and Robertson Bridge roads.

A Courier reporter at the scene said troopers and deputies have surrounded the residence and are using a bullhorn to call out the occupant.

Merlin-Galice Road is not blocked off, although side roads Taylor and Alameda Street and Taylor Place are.
