William Wayne Rowton (5883)



3/8/2011: By accounts Rowton was distraught over some personal issues. Towards midnight he was reported as armed and suicidal. Local police called in a cooperative multijurisdictional SWAT with about 24 officers and a police negotiator, who worked with Rowton for hours into early morning. Just before 3 a.m. a sniper saw him inside, pointing a weapon at police, and Rowton was fatally shot through a plate glass window. http://tdn.com/news/local/police-fatally-shoot-kelso-man-during-swat-standoff/article_43a7be98-49a1-11e0-95a2-001cc4c03286.html
