One of the neighbors reportedly threatened to shoot anyone who came to his house during this altercation.

Pasco police officers arrived and surrounded the house where the suspect was reported. However, they quickly realized that the man who has since been identified as Jeremy A. Collins of Chewelah, WA, was a block away walking a dog with his rifle in one hand.

Collins allegedly pointed his gun at the Pasco Police patrol car when responding officers recognized that it was simply a pellet gun. They switched to less-than-lethal tactics including a stun gun and K9 units.
