Motel standoff ends in Oregon for suspect in grandparents' death – Dan Simon reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

A standoff at a beachside Oregon motel ended Tuesday evening with the focus of the police's attention - the suspect in his grandparents' deaths over the weekend - being taken from his room and transported away in an ambulance.

Members of a "tactical team" entered the Lincoln City, Oregon, room of 26-year-old Michael Boysen around 7 p.m. (10 p.m. ET), emerging with no injuries, said city police Chief Keith Killian. The suspect had suffered apparently self-inflicted cuts, he added.

The image of him on a stretcher being placed in a waiting ambulance closed a day full of drama at the WestShore OceanFront Suites.

Boysen was taken into custody about an hour after authorities used water cannons to blast down part of the front door to the suspect's room, a move that showed authorities' intent to "just kind of step ... things up a little bit," according to Killian.

Dan Simon reports the latest on "Early Start" this morning.
