It’s 5 in the morning Saturday in front of a grocery store on Logan Road in Lincoln City. An employee learns there is a man outside yelling. He’s lacerating himself with a knife. He’s screaming he wants a cop to shoot him in the head.
A Lincoln City Police officer pulls up – assesses the situation and – according to the police report ” a less than lethal device was deployed.”
The hysterical man was subdued and loaded into an ambulance and was taken to North Lincoln Hospital.
