Aberdeen, WA – An Aberdeen man was arrested yesterday after an altercation between family members led to the Crisis Response Unit being activated in Aberdeen. 

The Aberdeen Police Department tells KXRO that just before 11:30 a.m. yesterday morning, officers were dispatched to a report of a family member pointing a handgun at another family member. 

Police say officers arrived as the rest of the family had exited out of the house.

He was arrested and subsequently transported to the Aberdeen Police Department where he was booked for Assault 2nd Degree Domestic Violence.
