HUBBARD -- Tactical officers Sunday evening shot and wounded a man who had been reported as suicidal and armed, police said.

The incident was near Whiskey Hill and Meridian roads east of Hubbard and started with calls to police about 9:15 p.m., said Clackamas County Deputy Marcus Mendoza.

Police determined that the threats of the man being armed were credible, Mendoza said. The man reportedly had "multiple" weapons. There were other people in the home and at a detached house.

Arriving deputies and a K-9 dog were followed by SWAT officers and a hostage negotiation team. Residents at the address were safely removed.

About 2 a.m. the man was shot by a SWAT officer "due to his actions," Mendoza said. The man's wounds were not considered life-threatening.

No further details were provided.
