Firearm discharge early Monday morning 4/8/24 **UPDATE:*

*New information received from eyewitnesses on scene paint a different picture than was originally received. 

According to witnesses, shortly after 2a.m. an individual standing in the middle of North Hwy 101 allegedly discharged a handgun three times into the air.

Management of Nokturnal immediately came outside to investigate while encouraging patrons to remain inside. The manager and floor supervisor asked everyone gathered on the nearby sidewalk to disperse, which they did.  As earlier reported, no one was injured or arrested*  

According to police reports, in the early morning hours of Monday, April 8 a male patron left Nokturnal/The Grill 1330 NE Hwy 10 Lincoln City, walked to his vehicle and discharged a firearm into the air.  No other person was involved and according to Lincoln City Police there was no altercation with any other individuals.  

The suspect left the scene without consequence.  However, later that morning a suspect  was detained by Lincoln City Police in front of Lincoln City BBQ at 1343 NW U.S. 101.

In a compelling video captured by and posted to the Lincoln City Homepage Community Facebook page by Eric Johnson a suspect can be seen handcuffed and lying face down on the wet asphalt of Hwy 101 outside of a vehicle.

According to the Lincoln City Public Information Officer no arrests were made as the suspect was not the individual they were seeking.  The detained individual was released on scene.
