CLALLAM BAY — A 25-year-old man was in the Clallam County jail Thursday after he was arrested following a disturbance at a home that led to Clallam Bay School being put into lockdown for about a half-hour earlier that day.

Taylor P. Hill was arrested for investigation of second-degree assault-domestic violence and two outstanding misdemeanor arrest warrants, said Sgt. Brian King with the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.

The case is being forwarded to the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney's Office for a formal charging decision, King said in a statement.

A resident at 16670 state Highway 112 just west of Kalawa Street called 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers at about 11:15 a.m., saying a man living there was armed with a handgun and threatening to shoot everyone in the house, King said.

As a precautionary measure because of the nearby Clallam Bay School at 16933 Highway 112, the school was placed into lockdown from about 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Deputies and Border Patrol agents found Hill living in an outbuilding on the property, King said.

Investigators were told that Hill had brandished a handgun during an argument with household members about the treatment of his girlfriend.

A BB air gun, a replica of a Colt Defender .45 ACP handgun, was found during a search of Hill's residence, King said.
