At about 4:30 p.m., deputies responded to a report of menacing in the 37000 block of Parsons Creek Road in Marcola. The suspect, Shane Leroy Doyle, 51, pointed a firearm at several victims during a dispute before leaving in a vehicle. En route to the call, deputies spotted Doyle’s vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. Doyle pulled over, started driving again, then stopped in the area of Marcola Road and Hayden Bridge Road, refusing to exit the vehicle. Deputies observed the interior of the vehicle from a distance with a LCSO drone. Doyle was armed with a pistol, rifle, and shotgun in the vehicle. He often was holding the handgun or had it in the seat next to him. LCSO Crisis Negotiation Team contacted the suspect by phone and de-escalated Doyle from his suicidal statements and threatening behavior, convincing him to surrender. After more than an hour of negotiation, Doyle was safely taken into custody.  He was lodged at the Lane County Jail on four counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon and four counts of Menacing.
