Auburn Police are currently on scene of a woman barricaded with a handgun within the 200 block of K St NE. Police have shared she is in her late 40’s. The incident began in the street as a dispute between neighbors. No one has been harmed. The situation is now contained to the woman’s home, where she is barricaded. Commander Jamie Douglas of the Auburn Police Department confirmed there is no present threat to the public.
There is a belief behavioral health may be a factor in this situation. The woman has no known history with the Auburn Police Department.

The lockdown at Cascade Middle School from about 9:15am-9:30am was unrelated to this incident.
