By Jim McCoy Mon 16th June Lorenzo Ignacio Kingpolice standoff
- The state police SWAT team was called in to arrest a suspect in a sexual assault case in Brookings after he barricaded himself in a back room of a house along U.S. Highway 101, claiming he had a gun and a hostage. Curry County Sheriff John Bishop says when officers stormed the house before dawn Sunday, they found 42-year-old Lorenzo Ignacio King had stabbed himself in the thighs in an attempt to bleed to death. Police found a handgun, but no hostage. A Coast Guard helicopter flew King to the hospital in Coos Bay. After treatment, he was taken to jail. Bishop says King is from Arroyo Grande, California, but had been working as a cook in Alaska. He was held on $2 million bail on assault and sodomy charges.
