Police surround home in Aloha after gunshot heard

ALOHA, Ore. – The Washington County Sheriff's Office called out the SWAT team Wednesday night after deputies reported hearing a gunshot coming from a home.

Deputies responded to a home near 160th and Shaw after a man called 9-1-1 to report finding a bullet hole in his house, said spokesman Sgt. David Thompson.
 
While deputies were trying to figure out what happened, they heard a gunshot. They found a second bullet hole in the house and then a third in another house nearby.

Deputies say they used the trajectories of the bullet holes to determine what house they came from. They called out the SWAT team, which surrounded that house.

Police closed the road at 160th and Blanton about a block away from the house, which is in a cul-de-sac. That is where police were still talking to a woman at 11 p.m. who had refused, for several hours, to surrender.

The sheriff's office says it sent a robot inside the house to look around.

Deputies don't know if the woman they are talking to is responsible for the bullet holes.

A small number of homes were evacuated as a precaution.
