DEPOE BAY, Ore. -- A man is in custody after Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies responded at 2 a.m. Wednesday to the 300 block of Vista Terrace to a report of a disturbance involving a gun, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Deputies contacted the caller outside the home and determined that there had been an argument over property inside the home between the caller and family member Christopher A. Lowes, 31, of Depoe Bay.

Deputies called Lowes outside and took him into custody without incident. He was transported to the Lincoln County Jail, where he is being held on charges of menacing, unlawful use of a firearm and recklessly endangering with his bail set at $80,000.

No one was injured in the incident.
