Police attempting safe surrender of barricaded suspect in Lincoln City

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 12th, 2013

Lincoln City Police Department, with the assistance of Oregon State Police and Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, are involved in ongoing attempts to obtain the surrender of a person believed to be Michael Boysen, 26, a suspect in a double-homicide in Washington State, who is inside a local motel room.

On March 12, 2013, information regarding a wanted murder suspect from Washington State led law enforcement officers to Westshore Oceanfront Motel west of Highway 101 in Lincoln City.

Lincoln City police, with the help of Oregon State Police SWAT team and Lincoln County deputies, have secured the area around the motel while they try to negotiate with a man barricaded inside a motel room. Other motel rooms have been evacuated and surrounding city streets are blocked. Area residents were contacted by a reverse 9-1-1 call asking they remain in their homes until the situation is resolved.
