Robert Charles Foster was killed after an hours-long standoff in a field behind the Faith Baptist Church in Bandon. The incident began when Foster called 9-1-1 and said he had explosives and planned to set off an explosion. Foster was spotted in a pickup truck about 100 yards behind the church around 11:30 a.m. Shortly before 4 p.m., he got out of his truck, pointed the shotgun at police, then fired once. Six officers shot and killed him.
