Police sirens

Seaside Police responded to a report of a firearm being discharged at 1:09 a.m. Monday, Jan. 11, on the beach near the turnaround. Officers located two juvenile males who were in possession of a pistol. A third juvenile male was located nearby in a parked vehicle, who was also found to be in possession of a pistol. All three juveniles were arrested on charges related to unlawful possession of a weapon, unlawful use of a firearm, reckless endangering another person, carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct.

Names of the arrested juveniles are not being released. Their ages are 14 years, 15 years and 16 years, and all three arrested are non-Clatsop County residents. The Clatsop County Juvenile Department made arrangements and later transported the three juveniles to a juvenile detention facility.
