Baker City Police and a SWAT team responded to an apparent shooting in north Baker City this morning.

No one was injured in the incident at a home on Cedar Street north of H Street, according to Baker City Police. 

Multiple sources have told the Baker City Herald that Dale Mack, a 1994 graduate of Baker High School, was involved in the incident.

However, it's not clear that Mack, who was arrested about 10 a.m., is being accused of firing a gun in what Baker City Police described as a "domestic violence incident."

"Two shots have been fired but at this time no injuries have been reported," according to a press release from Baker City Police.

Mack was still being processed at the Baker County Jail at 12:15 p.m. today, so the criminal charges he faces were not available. 

James and Betty Lissman, who live on the west side of Cedar Street north of H Street, said that about 9:45 a.m. they heard police on the east side of Cedar Street yelling through loudspeakers for "a person to come out of the house with his hands up."

Police were removing barricades and re-opening Cedar Street about 11 a.m. The street had been closed between H Street and Hughes Lane for several hours.

According to the Baker County Consolidated Dispatch Center, police were called at 1:06 a.m. to respond to a "suspicious situation" report at 3660 Cedar St. That property is owned by Daniel J. and Donna L. Mack, according to the Baker County Assessor's Office.

The Dispatch Center report says "city officers responded and cleared."

The Dispatch Center's website does not include any reports from the address later in the day.
