Gun alert!!! This is not a drill…

Lincoln City Police and possibly other law enforcement agencies are monitoring a man, carrying an assault rifle in plain view, walking northbound on Highway 101 in Lincoln City near SE 54th Drive.

It’s not against the law to carry such a weapon in public and it’s sometimes done by those who feel they must periodically display their right to bear arms.

Let’s hope that’s all this is.

8:58am
The man has been spotted walking along the east side of 101, wearing a green jacket and jeans. His assault rifle is slung over his shoulder. Police say he is not exhibiting any threatening behavior toward anyone. Just walking.

9:02am
Law enforcement has not engaged the man. Just monitoring.

9:03am
Man is now talking with an elderly male driving a white Chevy S-10-type vehicle. Officers are still not engaging the rifleman.

9:08am
Rifleman is now walking near Ocean Terrace on 101 at SW Beach.

9:10am
Law enforcement is now talking with the rifleman.

9:13am
Law enforcement says the rifleman is uncooperative, saying he is simply demonstrating his right to carry a weapon. The officer said he then continued walking. The officer said he’s walking with his assault rifle in a calm manner, exhibiting no threatening behavior. The officer said it is the same man who periodically does this in Lincoln City. Below is a photo of a man photographed last year while walking along the beach near Spanish Head.
