Seven law enforcement officials have been placed on administrative leave following a domestic disturbance call that led to a deadly officer-involved shooting near Wilsonville Friday night.
Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a home on SE Wilsonville Road near SW Edminston Road just outside Wilsonville around 8 p.m. CCSO said a Tualatin Police officer also responded to the call, along with two sergeants from the sheriff’s office.
“A woman had called 911 to report that her husband was armed with a handgun, which he had fired prior to police arrival, and was threatening to kill her and himself,” CCSO said in a release Saturday.
Following the arrival of law enforcement, the man refused to comply with verbal commands and ignored officers’ call for him to surrender his weapon. CCSO said several attempts were made to de-escalate the situation, but the man refused to stand down.
During the ensuing interactions, police shot him, according to the sheriff’s office.
The four deputies, two CCSO sergeants and police officer are now on paid administrative leave — standard practice following an officer-involved shooting. The names of the husband, involved deputies and Tualatin PD officer are not being released at this time.
The Clackamas County Inter-agency Major Crimes Team, Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office, a Clackamas County Deputy Medical Examiner, and Sheriff’s Office detectives and Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) responded to investigate.
