A man is dead after a domestic incident in Olivia Monday morning.
Chief Derek Lee says at 6:36 a.m. the Olivia Police Department responded to a report of a domestic dispute at an address in the 700 Block of Oak Avenue East in Olivia. Officers found a woman who had fled the home with some children. The officers entered the house to try and make contact with a man but were unsuccessful.
The woman said she was concerned that the man may have access to a couple of long guns, so police blocked off the area and notified officials at BOLD High School which was one block away to the south. BOLD placed the school on a lockdown, and neighbors were told of the potential danger.
An armored emergency response vehicle arrived at 10:10 a.m. and began attempts to make contact with the man. At 10:55 his body was found inside the house, and the lockdown at BOLD was lifted.
The man’s name has not been released, and the Midwest Medical Examiners Office will determine the cause of death.
