News Release
Suspect shoots at CCSO deputy during foot pursuit from stolen vehicle (Photo) - 01/09/18

At about 7:30 pm this evening, one of our patrol officers was driving through the parking lot of the Oregon City Shopping Center, 1900 McLoughlin Blvd., when he noticed a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. Our patrol officer went to speak with a male and female that were associated with the vehicle when our officer learned from dispatch that the vehicle was reported as a stolen vehicle out of Canby, OR. The male suspect took off running and our officer chased after him.

A Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Deputy was arriving in the parking lot to assist. As the CCSO deputy was arriving, the male suspect pulled out a handgun and fired at the arriving CCSO deputy, striking the deputies patrol car at least one time. The suspect was taken into custody and we are speaking with the female.

We are extremely thankful that the CCSO deputy, our officers, and the witnesses are okay. No rounds were fired by law enforcement. Oregon City Police Detectives along with the Clackamas County Major Crimes team are investigating the incident.

Reference OCPD case # 18-114.
