Date Reported: February 27th, 2017
Location: 119 State Street - Evansville, MN
Complainant/Victim: Paul Johnson, age 56
Matthew Nolan, age 32
On February 27th, 2017 Paul Johnson reported a domestic violence incident that had happened in his home at 119 State Street in Evansville. Johnson indicated that his adult son, Matthew Nolan, had threatened to kill him with a knife and that when law enforcement showed up, he was going to force deputies to kill him. Due to the nature of the threats and the presence of weapons in the home, part of the Douglas County SWAT Team was activated and responded, along with uniformed deputies. Nolan was taken into custody without incident at the residence at approximately 4:15 PM. Because of the proximity, the Evansville School was notified prior to our arrival. School was out for the day, but teachers and sports teams were in the building. Staff was instructed to keep everyone inside the building until an "all clear" was given.
Officer: Deputy Adam Kavanagh, #203
