SWAT Called After Troopers Hear Gunshot From Disabled Vehicle in Chehalis; Two Taken Into Custody


A 45-year-old Michigan man and a woman were taken into custody just after midnight Friday after Washington State Patrol troopers heard what sounded like a gunshot from a disabled vehicle along Interstate 5 in Chehalis. 

According to a media release from the state patrol, Eddie Owens, 45, of Waterford, Michigan, and an unnamed female listed as “Jane Doe” were taken into custody after two troopers approached the vehicle at mile marker 79 and heard gunfire from inside the vehicle. 

“Both troopers retreated, SWAT was called out and both subjects were taken into custody without incident,” according to the state patrol. 

Their vehicle, a 2009 Mercedes, was impounded as evidence. 

The case is under investigation.
