One of the machetes appeared to have drops of blood on the blade, court documents show.

Authorities believed Fisher to be extremely dangerous and possibly unstable, according to court documents. Fisher also called responding officers “demons,.” police said.

The burglary victim, identified as Wayne Howry, has known Fisher for about eight years, he told officers.

When a members of the SWAT team entered the shop to which Fisher fled, they found him lying on the floor, face down, documents said, with a shooting bow “around his neck.”

Fisher is did not appear in court Thursday, nor Friday following a stay at a local hospital before he was booked into Spokane County Jail. He’s expected to appear in court Monday, court officials said.
