UPDATE: Streets reopened after Port Angeles standoff

PORT ANGELES — Law enforcement officers have reopened streets that were blocked off and left the area after finishing negotiations with a person who was reported as being armed, said Port Angeles Police Chief Brian Smith at about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Third and Second streets had been blocked off between Chambers and Jones streets after police investigated a report at a house on East Third Street, beginning at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday. They were reopened before 7 p.m.

No one was arrested. No one was hurt, Smith said.

The situation was resolved as far as law enforcement was concerned, he said.

“In talking with the individual, we ruled out any reasons we would have to stay. We ruled out anything that would cause us to elevate the situation,” Smith said, adding that it was “unclear as to what might have happened” that prompted the call to the police.
