Press release notice

Officers learned that the resident of this address was Daniel Joseph Olsen (DOB 09/11/1984), and that he was the sole occupant. Through interviews, it was learned that a bullet traveled from Daniel Olsen’s apartment through the neighboring apartment’s wall, television, and window before coming to rest. The neighboring apartment was occupied by two people at the time of the shooting. No one was injured from this bullet. As a precaution, neighboring apartments were evacuated.

Officers on scene spent the next hour attempting to contact Mr. Olsen, but were unsuccessful. Linn County Sheriff’s Office was then contacted and assisted Lebanon Police Department with continued attempts to contact Mr. Olsen and to devise a strategy to take him into custody safely.

Lebanon Police Department’s Detectives Unit personnel were also called to the scene, and they obtained a search warrant for Mr. Olsen’s residence. Utilizing resources of an armored vehicle and a loud-hail speaker, Lebanon Police and Linn County Sheriff’s Office were able to contact Mr. Olsen and were successful in taking him into custody.

A search of the residence yielded two pistols, two rifles, and multiple rounds of ammunition. These items were seized by the Lebanon Police Department.

Mr. Olsen was temporarily lodged at the Lebanon Justice Center and later transported to Linn County Jail on charges of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, two counts of Reckless Endangering of Another Person, Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.

Lebanon Police Department has had one prior contact with the subject, and he is not listed as a suspect in any Lebanon Police Department cases.
