Callihoo could face charges related to standoff within six months

SUQUAMISH — Stacy Callihoo, serving 812 days in Chehalis Tribal Jail for violating his probation, could be in Suquamish Tribal Court within six months to face charges related to a warrant service that ended in a fatal shooting.

Callihoo, 42, was taken into custody on Dec. 8 after a two-hour standoff between Port Gamble S’Klallam Police, Suquamish Police and Kitsap County Sheriff’s officers, who went to a house in Suquamish to serve a warrant for his arrest. During the warrant service, police shot and killed Thomas Anthony “Tony” Black, a resident of the home. The Kitsap County Prosecutor’s Office determined the shooting was justified; Black had pointed a toy gun at officers. Toxicology revealed Black had meth in his system.

Callihoo is charged by Suquamish Tribal Prosecutor Donna McNamara with resisting arrest, refusing to aid an officer and disturbing the peace. The case number is CR-11217.

Callihoo is serving a sentence imposed by Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Court. He had been on probation for indecent liberties and assault, and was also charged with escape of his electronic monitoring device.

To prosecute Callihoo on the Suquamish charges, McNamara needs to get permission from Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Court and arrange for him to be transported from the jail to Suquamish court. She said those arrangements are being made and she expects Callihoo will be in Suquamish court within six months.

“We are working that out,” she said.
