Clackamas County Case # 19-008999

On April 19, 2019, just before 10:00 a.m., deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single family residence on the 5600 block of SE Hillwood Cir in unincorporated Clackamas County.  The resident at the location called to report his house was on fire.  Deputies were dispatched to the location due to known officer safety hazards.  Upon arrival it was determined there was no fire at the location.

The resident who was identified as Christian Hyde Slater, 36, of Milwaukie, had several felony and misdemeanor warrants for his arrest which included Unlawful use of a Weapon and Reckless Endangering another Person.  These warrants were issued yesterday and stemmed from a previous incident where it is believed Slater had been hallucinating and fired several rounds from inside his residence. 

Deputies were able to confirm Slater was in the house.  Due to potential safety concerns for the public, it was determined Slater should be taken into custody.  The Clackamas County Sheriff’s inter-agency SWAT Team was activated and responded to the area.  Residents from the surrounding homes were evacuated for their safety.  Tri-met sent buses to the area to use temporarily for the displaced residents.

The SWAT Team deployed with the Hostage Negotiations Team.  A negotiator made contact with Slater over a loud-hail-system.  Slater responded and exited the house without further incident.  Slater was taken into custody for the warrants. 

Due to several factors, it was determined Slater would be taken to the Clackamas County Jail to be processed and then transported to the VA Hospital and lodged on a Police Officer Hold.
