Wapakoneta Police Department Press Release:

On Thursday, January 5th, 2023 at 9:50 am our office was notified of a threat that was made in regards to a loss of life situation, including a “suicide by cop” scenario. Officers responded to the area and set up a perimeter and attempts to contact the male subject were unsuccessful. We contacted the Auglaize County Special Response Team who responded to the scene to assist. The subject’s mother also arrived on the scene and was able to make contact with the male, who did peacefully come out of the residence and agreed to get evaluated at a local hospital.

The Wapakoneta Police Department is extremely grateful for this outcome and would like to thank the family for their assistance with this situation.

We would also like to thank the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office for the quick response and assistance with their equipment and manpower, as well as the Wapakoneta Fire Department and Wapakoneta Street Department.
