News Release
UPDATE to officer-involved shooting - 01/07/21

Tigard Police Department can confirm that Tigard Police Officers responded to a reported domestic disturbance at an apartment complex near the intersection of SW Hall Blvd. and SW Bonita Rd. at approximately 4:04 p.m.  Upon further investigation, Tigard Police Officers attempted to arrest the suspect, Jacob Ryan McDuff, age 26, for domestic violence.  Officers confronted Mr. McDuff in his vehicle to effectuate their arrest and discovered that he was armed with a knife.  Mr. McDuff refused to surrender to police, and during the struggle to arrest Mr. McDuff, a Tigard Police Officer shot and killed Mr. McDuff.  This officer involved shooting remains under investigation by the Washington County Major Crimes Team and additional details will be released when they become available. 

Domestic violence calls are among the most dangerous calls a law enforcement officer can respond to. In Oregon, more than 37% of women and 33% of men experience intimate partner physical violence in their lifetimes, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Nationally, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner. If you need emergency help, call the Washington County Domestic Violence Resource Center (DVRC) 24-hour CRISIS HOTLINE at 503-469-8620. If you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1. 

The Washington County Major Crimes Team (MCT) is a multiagency investigative team led by the Washington County District Attorney’s Office and is activated for critical incidents, such as homicides and officer involved shootings.  In the case of an officer involved shooting, the MCT will lead the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting and acts independently from the police agency that employs the involved officer(s).  Upon a complete and independent investigation, the MCT determines whether there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against the involved officer(s).
