On April 7, 2023, at approximately 11:45 a.m. Officers with the Lake Havasu City Police Department responded to the 2800 block of Janet Drive to check the welfare of a male subject who was possibly suicidal. When officers arrived, the male subject was observed in the backyard and appeared to be holding a handgun. Officers believed that the male fired a couple of shots in their direction, then proceeded to barricade himself inside his residence.

As a result of a possible weapons offense, the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s SWAT team responded to the 2800 block of Janet Drive in an attempt to contact the male subject, identified as 53-year-old Lake Havasu City resident Damon Harrison. At approximately 2:20 p.m., Harrison was safely taken into custody without incident. None of the officers involved were injured in the incident.

As a result of the investigation, Damon Harrison was charged with Aggravated Assault on an Officer and Disorderly Conduct with a Weapon. During his initial appearances, he was held on a $10,000.00 bond and transferred to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

Public Information Officer:  Detective Chris Angus (928) 855-1171
