Bend PD arrests suspect after warning NE Bend residents to lock doors


UPDATE: Bend Police Department reveals identity of suspect who fired gun during domestic dispute. 

Police received a call just after 5 p.m. on Sunday about shots fired on NE Cobble Creek Ave. in Bend, with witnesses saying they heard screaming along with the shots, according to Bend PD Communications Director Sheila Miller. 

Before police arrived, the suspect, 41-year-old Micah Alan Reid, left the area and ran toward Jackson Ave. Police say they were able to communicate with him, but he wouldn’t share his location. 

Around two hours later, negotiators convinced him to turn himself in. Officers arrested Reid in the NE Purcell Blvd. and Lynda Lane area, Miller said. 

Police figured out that Reid had shot a 9-mm handgun into the floor, at another person’s house. Officers discovered the gun when they searched the house on NE Cobble Creek Ave. 

Reid was booked at the Deschutes County Jail on the following charges: 

  • Menacing
  • Harassment 
  • Reckless Endangerment 
  • Unlawful use of a weapon
  • Felon in possession of a firearm 


The Bend Police Department sent an alert to many living in NE Bend Sunday evening, warning them to stay inside and lock their doors due to a potentially armed suspect in the area. 

The alert sent at 5:50 p.m. described the suspect as wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans, and gray shoes. Police said he was thought to be armed “after a dispute.” 

Alerts sent via email referred to the area of Empire Ave. and NE 27th St. 

A second alert, sent out at 7:11 p.m., said that Bend PD had found the suspect and that he was in police custody. 

“You may resume normal activity in your area,” the alert read.
