Killed – Terry Lee Rolin (Portland, OR)

Terry Lee Rolin

Terry Lee Rolin, a 61-year-old man fatally shot on Christmas Eve, had been arguing with his older brother moments before in the Southeast Portland home they owned.

Rolin was found dead in the basement of a gunshot wound to his neck, according to witnesses and an autopsy done Thursday.

His older brother, Mickey O. Rolin, 62, suffered injuries from a fight with their distraught nephew after the shooting and was taken by ambulance to a hospital. No arrest has been made as the shooting remains under investigation, Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson said Thursday.

The victim had worked for Precision Castparts Corp. for 28 years and was looking forward to retiring in another four years, said his wife, Carolyn Rolin.

She and his friends described him as a compassionate man who embraced his stepchildren and grandchildren as his own, loved to fish and was a talker who could spend an hour taking out the garbage and chatting with neighbors. He had recently bought a new motorcycle for day trips.

The couple had split up about a week earlier, and Rolin had moved back in with his older brother.

About 5:30 p.m, Carolyn Rolin said her Christmas Eve was shattered when she got a phone call from her husband’s nephew, 28-year-old Terry Rolin, who goes by the nickname “little Terry.”

“He was hysterical and crying and said, ‘Uncle Terry got shot,”’ she recalled in an interview Thursday.

Carolyn Rolin drove to the house at the northeast corner of Southeast 67th Avenue and Rhone Street but wasn’t allowed in and didn’t know her husband’s condition for some time, she said.

A Multnomah County jury found a 64-year-old Southeast Portland man guilty Tuesday of fatally shooting his younger brother in the neck during an argument on Christmas Eve 2013.

Jurors found Mickey Omega Rolin guilty of the murder of Terry Lee Rolin, 61, during a seven-day trial in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

The brothers shared a home near Southeast 67th Avenue and Rhone Street. A nephew said he rushed downstairs after hearing his uncles shouting at each other and then two gunshots.

The nephew said his older uncle immediately confessed, saying something similar to: “I shot him. I shot Terry. Call the cops. Do what you’re going to do.”

Homicide Detectives have made an arrest in the Christmas Eve shooting death of 61-year-old Terry Lee Rolin. On Friday, December 27th, Detectives arrested 62-year-old Mickey Omega Rolin for murder with a firearm and booked him into the Multnomah County Jail. Detectives are seeking information from any witnesses who may have had contact with or seen the brothers during the day and early evening of Christmas Eve. Please contact Homicide Detectives Mark Slater at 503-823-9319 or mark.slater@portlandoregon.gov, or Detective Mark Sponhauer at 503-823-0416, or mark.sponhauer@portlandoregon.gov

Jeffrey Lamoreaux

Two people are charged with murder for the shooting death of a man in Silverton.

Police responded to a home on Olson Road on Dec. 2 and found the body of Jeffrey Lamoreaux, 30. The medical examiner performed an autopsy and determined the cause of death to be gunshot wounds to the head.

The death was also ruled a homicide.

On Friday, a Marion County grand jury issued indictments charging Uriah McKinley, 22, and Andrew Slover, 23, in connection with the case.

McKinley is charged with murder with a firearm, robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a short-barreled rifle and possession of meth.

Slover is charged with murder and robbery.

Both suspects are in the Marion County Jail and are due in court Dec. 16.

Jurors on Thursday convicted Andrew James Slover, 24, of murder and first-degree robbery in connection with the slaying of 30-year-old Jeffrey Edward Lamoreaux. Slover’s trial began Tuesday before Marion County Circuit Judge Cheryl Pellegrini.

Silverton Police responded just after 5 p.m. to the home at 218 Olson Rd. where they found the body of Jeffrey Lamoreaux, police said in a press release. An autopsy is scheduled to be completed today, and no further information was immediately available.

Killed – Tyler Keinonen (Bend, OR)

Tyler Keinonen1

A Bend police officer fatally shot a burglary suspect Friday night as he left a house where police had seized firearms, heroin and methamphetamine just hours earlier.

Oregon State Police and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the fatal shooting.

About 10:22 p.m. Friday, two Bend police officers responded to a report of a possible burglary-in-progress at 2878 NE Jackdaw Dr.

A six-week investigation by Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty has concluded Bend Police Officer Erick Supplee was justified when he fatally shot a Bend burglary suspect in November 2013.

Flaherty and Police Chief Jeff Sale on Wednesday held a press conference to release additional details about the incident, including the results of a toxicology report conducted on the suspect and information about items found at the scene.

“This was a tragic and sad event for the family and friends of Tyler Keinonen and for the officers and first responders,” Flaherty said. “This tragic event is yet another example of the destructive blight that is methamphetamine in our community.

“We determined the shooting was justified because Officer Supplee clearly had a reasonable belief that he was going to be shot and killed,” Flaherty said.

Keinonen, 31, died of a single gunshot wound to the chest after disobeying repeated commands from three officers responding to reports of a possible burglary at a home on Northeast Jackdaw Drive on Nov. 22, according to the death investigation report released Wednesday.

The report states Keinonen was at the home to collect a drug debt.

A representative of the estate of Tyler Keinonen, who was shot and killed by Bend Police Officer Erick Supplee in November 2013, has filed a lawsuit against Supplee and the city of Bend in U.S. District Court, seeking up to $7 million in damages.

The complaint alleges Supplee used excessive deadly force and committed battery when he shot Keinonen once in the chest on the night of Nov. 22.

In January 2014, then-Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty found Supplee’s use of deadly physical force in the incident was lawful and justified.

Killed – Adrian Nicole Bird (Turner, OR)

Adrian Nicole Bird1

TURNER, Ore. A suspect who shot and killed a woman after firing on cops in Turner was arrested after an 8-hour standoff when the SWAT team busted into his apartment and rescued a 2-year-old child, police said.

It all started around 9:30 p.m. Friday when police responded to a domestic violence call at an apartment in the 7300 block of 3rd Street Southeast and encountered a man and woman walking down the stairs from a second-story apartment, said Don Thomson with the Marion County Sheriff s Office.

When officers tried to talk to the couple, the man, later identified as 24-year-old Dustin Michael Bryant, pulled out a gun and fired at them, Thomson said.

Rather than return fire, police dove for cover, narrowly avoiding getting hit by bullets. While Bryant was shooting, however, the woman, later identified as 23-year-old Adrian Nicole Bird, tried to run away and was shot dead, Thomson said.

On Sunday, the Oregon State Medical Examiner determined Bird died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Bryant then ran up the stairs into an apartment where he held Bird’s 2-year-old daughter hostage for the next 8 hours, Thomson said.

Law enforcement from multiple agencies then descended on the scene, teaming up to take shifts in the frigid fall night.

Hostage negotiators spent hours talking and even texting with Bryant, trying to convince him to release his hostage as the SWAT team carefully evacuated the rest of the apartment complex, Thomson said.

By 5:30 a.m., negotiators decided to send in the SWAT team.

A neighbor who lives behind the apartment said a police sniper took a shot from his backyard.

They had taken a shot and immediately after a shot was taken there was a flash from the front side of the apartment from them going in, he said.

What the neighbor described was the SWAT team’s tactical entry with flash grenades into the apartment. Once inside, officers took Bryant into custody and rescued the child. Bryant suffered a minor injury in the melee. He was taken to the hospital before getting booked in the Marion County Jail, Thomson said.

Bryant has a history of domestic violence arrests, including assault and harassment convictions from an Aug. 31 incident involving Bird, according to documents obtained by KGW Saturday.

Her boyfriend, Dustin Michael Bryant, 24, was arrested at the scene following a dramatic standoff with police, during which he held Bird’s 2-year-old daughter hostage overnight. He is being held without bail in the Marion County Jail on a probation violation.

Killed – Christopher Lee Koziatek (Eugene, OR)

male

EUGENE — Eugene police say an officer who stopped a man on a mini-motorcycle near a high school had already taken a hatchet and a large knife from the motorcyclist when the man ran toward the school while still armed with a handgun.

Police say Officer Aaron Johns chased and caught the man Wednesday afternoon and the two struggled before Johns fatally shot the other man.

Police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin identified the dead man Thursday as 44-year-old Christopher Lee Koziatek of Eugene. She said she did not yet know the reason for the traffic stop.

The 40-year-old officer is a police school resource officer at Churchill High School. Police say Johns called for emergency backup and ordered a school lockdown before catching up to the man.

Police say Koziatek was shot in a parking lot on school property after assaulting the officer. The 15-year Eugene police veteran was not seriously hurt.

A Eugene police officer called for emergency cover and a modified school lockdown for Churchill High School at 2:45 p.m.

Shortly afterward, according to Eugene police, there was a call of shots fired. A 44-year-old man was found dead outside to the south of the school.

A Eugene police officer acted “heroically and brilliantly” when he tackled and was forced to fatally shoot an armed man near Churchill High School last month, the Lane County district attorney announced Thursday.

The ruling by Alex Gardner clears officer Aaron Johns of any wrongdoing in the Nov. 20 incident that left 44-year-old Christopher Koziatek dead from five gunshot wounds. Johns, a popular school resource officer at Churchill, is expected to return to that post when classes resume after the holidays.

At a county courthouse news briefing, Gardner and Eugene Police Chief Pete Kerns said Johns faced one of the most dangerous and frightening situations an officer could imagine, and yet had the presence of mind to radio for help and have the school placed on lockdown even as he rushed toward the fatal encounter.

Johns was not injured in the fight but has been off duty since the incident, a routine step in such cases.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Police Officer – Robert Libke (Oregon City, OR)

Officer Robert Libke

Oregon City Reserve Police Officer Robert Libke has died.

Libke was shot Sunday when he responded to a 911 call reporting a house fire in the 800 block of Linn Avenue in Oregon City. Other responding officers shot and killed the shooting suspect and owner of the burned home, Lawrence Cambra, 88.

Oregon City Police Chief James Band will hold a press briefing at 4 p.m. today at City Hall. Libke’s body will be escorted from Emanuel Hospital to Lincoln Memorial Park Funeral Home later today, Oregon City police reported.

Libke, 41, has served since 2009.

The incident began shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday, when a fire was reported at 841 Linn Ave. During the initial dispatch, a report was broadcast of an armed male at the fire scene.

Oregon City Police and Clackamas Fire District #1 crews were dispatched — with the police sent to deal with the reported gunman.

The first responding unit was a two-officer unit with one regular and one reserve Oregon City Police officer. Cambra confronted and shot Libke, police reported.

Officers who came to Libke’s aid encountered and shot Cambra, Oregon City police reported.

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Oregon City police forcefully defended two police officers’ decision to leave a fallen fellow officer on the ground near a suspect for 90 minutes in November.

Oregon City Police Chief Jim Band said Monday that the two initial responding officers believed police officer-in-training Robert Libke was dead, and a third officer who arrived later also believed Libke died instantly. It wasn’t until a SWAT team arrived and witnessed Libke move his arm that they switched from a recovery mission to a rescue mission.

A SWAT team physician said Libke would likely have died regardless of the 90-minute delay.

The State Medical Examiner’s Office said Tuesday that Lawrence Cambra, 88-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing an Oregon City reserve police officer Sunday afternoon, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Cambra is believed to have shot 41-year-old Reserve Officer Robert Libke when he responded to a fire at Cambra’s home.

At about 1 p.m. Sunday, Oregon City police and Clackamas Fire District No. 1 crews responded to a house fire at 841 Linn Ave. Neighbors told 911 dispatchers that the home was ablaze as Cambra was running around his property with a gun.

Libke was one of the first officers on scene. According to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, he was confronted and shot by Cambra. Libke was airlifted to Legacy Emanuel. He was taken off life support and died just after noon Monday.

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, the Governor’s Commission on the Law Enforcement Medal of Honor held an emergency meeting and unanimously voted to award the Medal of Ultimate Sacrifice to Libke.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Lawrence Cambra (Oregon City, OR)

Lawrence Cambra

Oregon City Reserve Police Officer Robert Libke has died.

Libke was shot Sunday when he responded to a 911 call reporting a house fire in the 800 block of Linn Avenue in Oregon City. Other responding officers shot and killed the shooting suspect and owner of the burned home, Lawrence Cambra, 88.

Oregon City Police Chief James Band will hold a press briefing at 4 p.m. today at City Hall. Libke’s body will be escorted from Emanuel Hospital to Lincoln Memorial Park Funeral Home later today, Oregon City police reported.

Libke, 41, has served since 2009.

The incident began shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday, when a fire was reported at 841 Linn Ave. During the initial dispatch, a report was broadcast of an armed male at the fire scene.

Oregon City Police and Clackamas Fire District #1 crews were dispatched — with the police sent to deal with the reported gunman.

The first responding unit was a two-officer unit with one regular and one reserve Oregon City Police officer. Cambra confronted and shot Libke, police reported.

Officers who came to Libke’s aid encountered and shot Cambra, Oregon City police reported.

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Oregon City police forcefully defended two police officers’ decision to leave a fallen fellow officer on the ground near a suspect for 90 minutes in November.

Oregon City Police Chief Jim Band said Monday that the two initial responding officers believed police officer-in-training Robert Libke was dead, and a third officer who arrived later also believed Libke died instantly. It wasn’t until a SWAT team arrived and witnessed Libke move his arm that they switched from a recovery mission to a rescue mission.

A SWAT team physician said Libke would likely have died regardless of the 90-minute delay.

The State Medical Examiner’s Office said Tuesday that Lawrence Cambra, 88-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing an Oregon City reserve police officer Sunday afternoon, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Cambra is believed to have shot 41-year-old Reserve Officer Robert Libke when he responded to a fire at Cambra’s home.

At about 1 p.m. Sunday, Oregon City police and Clackamas Fire District No. 1 crews responded to a house fire at 841 Linn Ave. Neighbors told 911 dispatchers that the home was ablaze as Cambra was running around his property with a gun.

Libke was one of the first officers on scene. According to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, he was confronted and shot by Cambra. Libke was airlifted to Legacy Emanuel. He was taken off life support and died just after noon Monday.

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, the Governor’s Commission on the Law Enforcement Medal of Honor held an emergency meeting and unanimously voted to award the Medal of Ultimate Sacrifice to Libke.

Killed – Victor Torres-Elizondo (Hillsboro, OR)

male

The actions of Officer Will Blood of the Hillsboro Police Department, who used deadly force against an armed suspect following a traffic stop last year, have been judged by the Washington County District Attorney’s office to have been “reasonable and justified.”

At 9:40 p.m. on Oct. 25, 2013, HPD officers Blood and Tina Latendresse responded to a traffic stop on 13th Avenue near Southeast Maple Street in Hillsboro. After a man identified as Victor Torres-Elizondo, 30, opened fire on Latendresse, Blood returned fire, killing the man.

Police say Torres-Elizondo, 30, fired a shot from a .22 caliber revolver during a traffic stop on Friday, Oct. 25, before a Hillsboro police officer fired six shots back, striking Torres-Elizondo. He was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, where he died, authorities say. Torres-Elizondo died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the state medical examiner’s office.

Police released information about the number of shots fired during the incident on Wednesday, Oct. 30. They also said that a bullet from Torres-Elizondo’s gun struck an officer’s Taser, and a piece of shrapnel then hit her hand.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office has determined that a Hillsboro police officer was justified in the fatal shooting of a man who authorities say fired at a cop during an October traffic stop.

Officer Will Blood shot 30-year-old Victor Torres-Elizondo six times during the incident, according to a letter dated Dec. 24 from Senior Deputy District Attorney Jeff Lesowski to Hillsboro Deputy Chief Mark Bonnett. The letter upheld Blood’s actions.

Torres-Elizondo fired at Hillsboro Officer Tina Latendresse with a .22 caliber revolver at “nearly point-blank range,” the letter says, striking the officer’s Taser. Torres-Elizondo, according to the letter, had used methamphetamine before the incident.

Double Shooting – Killed – Male Teen – Abukar Madey (Portland OR)

Abukar Madey

In December 2013, a Multnomah County grand jury reviewed evidence in the case an issued a “not true bill” for the charges and ruled the shooting was an act of self-defense.

Velasquez plead guilty in March 2014 to one count each of unlawful possession of a firearm and tampering with physical evidence. He was ordered to spend 90 days in jail. As part of his probation, he was ordered not to have any weapons. A hearing is now scheduled for Nov. 24, 2014 to address the alleged probation violation.

Surveillance video shows Velasquez and his then girlfriend walking over to the stairs that takes people to the MAX platform.

As Velasquez and his girlfriend were smoking a cigarette, a male wearing a mask came up the stairs and passed them.

Two other males – later identified as Madey and Ramirez – approached Velasquez and his girlfriend along with the masked male.

Velasquez told police that Ramirez was trying to start a fight and was asking him if he had any gang affiliations, court records show.

Velasquez told investigators that he felt threatened by the Madey, Ramirez and the masked male “so he adjusted the gun he had concealed in his waistband,” Senior Deputy District Attorney Kirsten Snowden wrote in court documents filed in Dec. 2013. The move was to get the three males to back away from Velasquez and his girlfriend.

Ramirez walked over to Madey and pulled out a large assault rifle that “looked like an AK,” Velasquez told investigators.

The rifle had been concealed in a backpack that Madey was wearing, court documents state. Velasquez’s girlfriend told investigators the backpack was actually a guitar case.

Portland Police later recovered a loaded, Hi-Point semiautomatic rifle from a guitar case that was worn by Madey, court records show.

Surveillance video shows Madey wearing the guitar case. It also shows Ramirez walking over, taking out the firearm and pointing it directly at Velasquez as Ramirez approaches, court documents state.

“Abukar Madey can been seen pulling out a sawed-off pistol-grip shotgun from his front pocket and pointing it in the direction of Silvano Velasquez (and his girlfriend) with his right hand and advancing toward them with (Ramirez),” Snowden wrote.

Velasquez told police that Ramirez “jabbed him in the chest” with the rifle. Ramirez can be seen putting the rifle back inside the guitar case while Madey puts the shotgun back into his pocket, court records show.

Velasquez told investigators that Ramirez continued to provoke a fight, court records show.

The video shows the Ramirez, Madey and the masked male surrounding Velasquez and his girlfriend, court records show.

Ramirez assumed an “aggressive posture” while facing Velasquez when the masked male suddenly came from the left and punched Velasquez twice in the face, court records show.

Velasquez told investigators that he feared for his life and believed the he and his girlfriend were going to be killed or seriously injured, so he pulled out his gun and fired in the direction of the three males until he was out of ammunition, court records show.

“The video show Abukar Madey falling to the ground,” court records show. “Velasquez can be seen kicking Abukar Madey on the ground and holding his gun to him as he searched him for a weapon.”

Velasquez then takes the sawed off shotgun from Madey’s pocket. He and his girlfriend then ran from the scene.

Velasquez told investigators he took the gun because he was out of ammunition and said he was fearful that Ramirez and the masked male might return, court documents state.

Ramirez was shot twice in the abdomen and once in the left arm, court documents state.

Velasquez, 18, and his girlfriend had been smoking cigarettes near the top of the stairs leading to the MAX platform around 11:45 p.m. when Ramirez, Madey and a third man wearing a mask walked up to them from behind. Police identified Ramirez as a documented member of the Compton Varrio Tortilla Flats gang.

Portland police detectives are continuing to investigate a MAX stop shooting that killed a 15-year-old Franklin High School student and wounded a 22-year-old man.

The shooting happened just before midnight Friday at the transit station at Southeast 93rd and Holgate.

Ramirez assumed an “aggressive posture” while facing Velasquez when the masked male suddenly came from the left and punched Velasquez twice in the face, court records show.

Velasquez told investigators that he feared for his life and believed the he and his girlfriend were going to be killed or seriously injured, so he pulled out his gun and fired in the direction of the three males until he was out of ammunition, court records show.

“The video show Abukar Madey falling to the ground,” court records show. “Velasquez can be seen kicking Abukar Madey on the ground and holding his gun to him as he searched him for a weapon.”

Velasquez then takes the sawed off shotgun from Madey’s pocket. He and his girlfriend then ran from the scene.

Velasquez told investigators he took the gun because he was out of ammunition and said he was fearful that Ramirez and the masked male might return, court documents state.

Ramirez was shot twice in the abdomen and once in the left arm, court documents state.

Velasquez, 18, and his girlfriend had been smoking cigarettes near the top of the stairs leading to the MAX platform around 11:45 p.m. when Ramirez, Madey and a third man wearing a mask walked up to them from behind. Police identified Ramirez as a documented member of the Compton Varrio Tortilla Flats gang.

Portland police detectives are continuing to investigate a MAX stop shooting that killed a 15-year-old Franklin High School student and wounded a 22-year-old man.

The shooting happened just before midnight Friday at the transit station at Southeast 93rd and Holgate.

Killed – Jacob Colman (Ontario, OR)

male

Ontario — As police continue their investigation into the shooting death of 34-year-old Jacob Allen Colman, Ontario, who was found dead in his home Tuesday around 3:30 p.m., details of Colman’s past are emerging — including Colman’s conviction for the murder of his foster parents when he was just 12 years old.

Colman killed his foster parents, Pete and Janet Read, in Culver, Ore., in 1992, according to The Associated Press. In a taped interview with police, the 12-year-old boy said he killed them because they made him do his homework.

Colman was released from the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in 2000 when he turned 21.

ONTARIO, Ore. (AP & KBOI) – An Oregon man has been fatally shot more than two decades after he killed his foster parents in a high-profile double murder.

Killed – Tiffany Jenks (Fairview, OR)

Tiffany Jenks

FAIRVIEW, Ore. – Police have arrested three people in connection with the murder of Tiffany Jenks last week near Blue Lake Park.

Daniel Bruynell, 25, is charged with murder and is in custody in Oakland, Calif.

Michelle Worden-Brosey, 40, and Joshua Robinett, 38, are in custody at the Multnomah County Jail. Both are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and hindering prosecution.

Jenks’ body was found Oct. 8 by the side of the road. A medical examiner said she died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Worden-Brosey and Joshua Robinett met about 20 years ago. They kept in close contact and around October 2013 decided to get married.

The plan called for Robinett to drive up to Oregon on Oct. 7, 2013. Worden-Brosey would drive down from Washington. The two would meet and then they would go off and get married.

Robinett told Worden-Brosey that he was bringing a friend, Daniel Bruynell. The two men had met in Oakland, California. Robinett wanted to sell two guns: one Robinett had, the other Worden-Brosey had.

Worden-Brosey rented a motel room near the airport. She decided that around 9 p.m. on Oct. 7, 2013 that she would drive down to Woodburn to pick up the two men after their vehicle got a flat tire.

Worden-Brosey decided to have an impromptu bachelor’s party.

The three ended up going to Falco’s Pub and Mystic Strip Club, located in Southeast Portland around 12 a.m. on Oct. 8, 2013.

Jenks met Bruynell, Robinett and Worden-Brosey around 1:40 a.m. at Falco’s.

“Mrs. Worden-Brosey approached my sister that night and initiated a conversation,” JJ Jenks, Tiffany’s brother said. “Tiffany would have never left that establishment otherwise.”

The four got into a vehicle and started driving around, Ramras said.

Police said Bruynell is the person who shot Jenks.

“She was left on the side of the road, essentially, like a bag of trash,” Ramras said.

Two separate people who live in the area of the park told police they heard what sounded like a gunshot around 2:30 a.m. Oct. 8, 2013.

Bruynell, according to court documents, admitted to shooting Jenks, and told police that Robinett and Worden-Brosey “even congratulated him” on shooting Jenks.

Double Murder – Killed – Michael Piete (Grant County, OR)

male

Michael Piete and his uncle, Kenneth Gilliland, had hunted deer together and with other relatives for years from a remote log cabin in the Blue Mountains of northeastern Oregon.

Their last hunting trip ended with them both being shot dead. Authorities said Piete’s 14-year-old foster son shot them both, then ran off, but came back after accidentally shooting himself in the leg. Another of the hunting party held him at gunpoint and taped him to a chair until deputies arrived.

Deputies said the boy was at a hunting cabin with 43-year-old Michael Piete, the foster father, and 64-year-old Kenneth Gilliland. He shot both men, and then fled the scene on foot, deputies said.

CANYON CITY – Dillan Dakota Easley, 15, was sentenced last week to remain in custody to age 25 for killing his foster father and another man in 2013.

Circuit Judge J. Burdette Pratt issued the sentence Wednesday, Dec. 17, after defense attorneys and state prosecutors reached a resolution in the case.

Easley had been accused of the juvenile equivalent of murder for the shootings on the night of Oct. 2, 2013, in a remote hunting cabin near Granite, in northeastern Grant County.

Police called to the scene found Michael Piete, 32, and his uncle, Kenneth Gilliland, 64, both of Baker City, dead at the scene.

Killed – Makeitho Tito De Monz Herring (Gresham, OR)

Makeitho Tito De Monz Herring1

GRESHAM, Ore. – Police are investigating Monday night’s shooting death of a Portland man at an apartment complex in Gresham as a homicide.

Police believe Makeitho “Tito” De Monz Herring, 37, was visiting his parents at the Pine Square Apartments when he was shot around 11 p.m.

Herring was found on the ground in the parking lot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 28-year-old man linked to a fatal Gresham shooting last month has been arrested in Nevada.

Brandon Alexander Hickman, of Gresham, was arrested by U.S. Marshals Thursday in Henderson, Nev., on an outstanding warrant, said Lt. Claudio Grandjean, a Gresham police spokesman. He is due in court for a hearing next Tuesday, according to county jail records.

Hickman is accused of shooting Makeitho “Tito” De Monz Herring, 37, of Portland, on Sept. 9 at the Pine Square Apartments in the 700 block of Northeast 178th Avenue, police said. The two lived in the same complex, but details of what led to the shooting have not been released.

Killed – Leron J. Estes (Kerby, OR)

Leron J. Estes

KERBY(AP) — A Southern Oregon man involved in a dispute that led to a fatal shooting over the weekend was cleared four years ago in the shooting of a neighbor.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports that 64-year-old Donald Easley shot and killed a neighbor in November 2009 at about the same location as a shooting reported Saturday afternoon near Kerby in Josephine County.

In 2010, the grand jury declined to bring charges, saying that Easley had acted in self-defense when he shot 60-year-old Kenneth L. Vaughn.

As of Monday, the paper reported no arrests had been made in the shooting Saturday of 59-year-old Leron J. Estes. State police said Easley fired a handgun at his neighbor.

On Aug. 30, Easley had gotten a restraining order against Estes.

A Kerby Oregon man accused of killing his neighbor is currently under trial.

Forensic testimony dominated the Donald Easley murder case on Tuesday.

City of Grants Pass Detective Archie Lidey says, “It involved Donald Easley shooting Leron Estes.”

The two Kerby neighbors had a long running dispute which ended in September of last year when Deputy DA Lisa Turner says Easley shot and killed Leron Estes.

“I saw my husband run and try to get away from the fence,” the victim’s wife, Barbara Hicks, told local TV station KOBI. “And I saw the hand come through that hole that fence with the gun and fired 3 shots and the third shot hit my husband in the back.”

News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: September 8th, 2013 12:19 PM
An investigation by members of the Josephine County Major Crimes Team, led by Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigations Division, is continuing following a Saturday afternoon shooting near Kerby. The shooting resulted in the death of an adult male after he was taken to a Grants Pass hospital. No arrests have been made as the investigation continues with the involvement of the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office.

On September 7, 2013 at approximately 5:00 p.m., OSP troopers and local emergency responders received a report of a shooting involving two neighboring property residents in the 23000 address block of Redwood Highway (Highway 199) in Kerby. One of the involved persons identified as LERON JUSTIN ESTES, age 59, was transported to Three Rivers Medical Center with a gunshot wound. He died after arriving at the hospital.

The Josephine County Major Crimes Team, comprised of detectives from OSP Criminal Investigations Division detectives and Grants Pass Police Department, were activated to investigate.

The preliminary investigation indicates ESTES and a neighboring property resident, DONALD EASLEY, age 64, were involved in an ongoing dispute. EASLEY fired at least one shot from a handgun at ESTES causing his death.

No arrest has been made at this time. No other information will be released pending the ongoing investigation without the approval of the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office.

Killed – Charlie Rivera (Salem, OR)

Charlie Rivera1

The victim of a Saturday morning Salem shooting, 23-year-old Charlie Rivera of Woodburn, died Saturday evening at Salem Hospital, according to police.

An autopsy is planned for Monday morning, police say.

Police responded to a report of shots fired in the Londonaire Apartments parking lot at 955 Concord St. N.E. in Salem around 3:45 a.m. Saturday.

Double Shooting – Killed – John Van Allen II (The Dalles, OR)

John Van Allen II

THE DALLES, Ore. Police identified the driver who was shot and killed after he reportedly fired on an Oregon State trooper during a traffic stop on Interstate 84 east of The Dalles Thursday.

John Van Allen II, 34,(pictured right) died from a single gunshot wound.Allen’s family told KGW Friday that he was heading out of town on a road trip with his three kids, ages 10, 13 and 15, who were in the car at the time of the shooting.They don’t understand why Allen, who they say is an Army veteran, pulled a gun on the trooper.

It’s upsetting because he was trying to take his children on a road trip and this is a most unfortunate incident, but I’d just like to get to the bottom of it and find out what caused it all, said Allen’s aunt, Deborah Morton-Hamlet.

The deadly shooting started just before 1 p.m. when a State trooper pulled over a vehicle driven by Allen. He reportedly got out and fired on Trooper Matthew Zistel, 26, hitting him in the side. Zistel returned fire and Allen got back into his vehicle, Hastings said.

Allen was then found about a half mile down the road slumped over in his vehicle. Troopers tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead at the scene, Hastings said.

Zistel was taken to a nearby hospital with a mild gunshot wound to his left side. He was released Thursday evening, Hastings said. The juveniles were taken to The Dalles for questioning by investigators.

The Sherman County District Attorney has ruled that Oregon State Police Trooper Matt Zistel acted in self-defense when he shot and killed motorist John Van Allen II of East Portland on Aug. 29 on Interstate 84 near Rufus, according to information released Sept. 17.

#The incident occurred at around 12:50 p.m., when Zistel initiated a traffic stop of a Cadillac Catera for traveling at 76 miles per hour in a construction zone. The vehicle pulled to the side of the road and Zistel pulled his patrol car behind the suspect’s vehicle.

Killed – Wayne Klavano (Lebanon, OR)

Wayne Klavano

Portland’s KPTV reported that Travis Powers, 23, of Windsor, Colo. and Daniel Armbrecht, 20, from Pagosa Springs, Colo. are in custody in Utah. Officers said they have found evidence linking the two to 48-year-old Wayne Klavano’s death.

Klavano’s parents found his body on Tuesday at a remote campsite north of Oregon Highway 20. He had an appointment scheduled that afternoon in Lebanon, but when he didn’t arrive, his parents went to the campsite to check on him, according to KPTV.

ALBANY — Travis Powers told about a dozen family members and friends of Wayne Keith Klavano on Thursday afternoon that he was “deeply sorry” for taking the life of the 48-year-old self-described mountain man on July 29 at a Cascadia area campsite.

The two sides agreed to amend a first-degree robbery charge to second-degree robbery, for which Powers will serve 70 months concurrently. He also will serve six months concurrently on a first-degree theft charge.

A Utah Highway Patrol trooper pulled Armbrecht and Powers over at 11:55 p.m. on July 29 for an equipment violation, said Cpl. Todd Johnson of UHP.

On July 30, at about 6:15 p.m., Keith and Sharon Klavano, of Lebanon, reported to the sheriff’s office they had found the body of their son at his campsite located in a remote area off of the Upper Soda Fork Road about 12 miles north of Highway 20.

Killed – Cindy Shepard (Redmond, OR)

female

A Deschutes County sheriff’s deputy was justified July 2 in fatally shooting an armed, 54-year-old woman during a confrontation outside her apartment west of Redmond, District Attorney Patrick Flaherty ruled today.

Deputy Michael Sundberg fired on Cindy Shepard as she advanced on two other deputies, a shotgun in her hands, “in the firing position,” according to a report by Flaherty.

Sundberg fired one rifle round, striking Shepard in the torso and killing her around 10:30 p.m., Flaherty found.

Shepard, “over the course of approximately 40 minutes,” fired at least two rounds from a handgun and repeatedly threatened to fire on deputies while ignoring pleas to drop her firearms, according to Flaherty. The woman, who was being questioned as part of a investigation when the incident began, entered and exited her apartment during the standoff at least three times, “each time coming out with a different firearm.”

Double Shooting – Killed – Girl – Alysa Bobbitt (Grant’s Pass, OR)

Alysa Bobbitt

An Oregon man told police he was using his assault rifle as a crutch to help him get up from a couch at a friend’s apartment when it fired a burst through the ceiling and killed a little girl upstairs, court records show.

A police affidavit said Jon Andrew Meyer Jr. told investigators the gun went off accidentally June 27 at the Grants Pass apartment, the Grants Pass Daily Courier reported.

Authorities say he was responsible for the reckless burst of rifle fire that killed 5-year-old Alysa Bobbitt of Shady Cove and wounded apartment resident Karen Hancock. The girl and Hancock were upstairs in the same apartment as Meyer.

The little girl and her mother were visiting friends there, but just what Meyer was doing in the apartment with the rifle was unclear. Court records say his fiancee had kicked him out of her place, getting a restraining order, and he listed his current residence as his sister’s home.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Family members of a young girl who was shot and killed Thursday night are speaking out, and asking why a man with a gun was allowed in the same area as the girl.

Grants Pass Police say Thursday night, 30-year-old Jon Meyer fired an assault rifle inside an apartment on Northwest C street. Police say the bullets went through the ceiling and hit 5-year old Alysa Bobbit and 44-year-old Karen Hancock, who were on the second floor of the two-story unit. Bobbit was killed, and Hancock was seriously wounded. Meyer was arrested and charged with manslaughter.

Killed – Bruce Ross Rogers (Warrenton, OR)

male

Shooting of Bruce Ross Rogers in Warrenton Justifiable Shooting:

Following a two month investigation, the Clatsop County District Attorney has determined that the shooting of Bruce Ross Rogers (DOB: 5-7-74) on May 7, 2013 in the City of Warrenton was a justifiable homicide and done in self-defense since Rogers was committing a burglary on the victim and the victim reasonably believed that rogers was attempting to commit a felony involving the use of physical force against the victim.

Oregon law allows the use of deadly physical force against another person only when a person reasonably believes that the other person is:

Committing or attempting to commit a felony involving the use or threatened use of physical force against a person; or
Committing or attempting to commit a burglary in a dwelling (a burglary occurs when a person trespasses in a dwelling with the intent to commit some crime inside the dwelling); or
Using or about to use unlawful deadly physical force against a person.
This case will not be submitted to the grand jury for review since the facts don’t present a close question regarding the victim’s use of force in this case. Rogers had been arrested on 4-7-13 and had charges of assault, coercion, strangulation and interfering with making a report pending at the time of his death. Pursuant to the terms of his release in that case, Rogers was to have no contact with the victim or the premises where the shooting occurred.

WARRENTON — A man with a history of domestic violence was shot and killed after breaking into an apartment Tuesday in Warrenton.

The shooting occurred around 11 a.m., when Bruce Ross Rogers, 39, allegedly forced entry into the home through a door.

A 46-year-old woman, a 19-year-old man and two teenage girls were inside the upper-level apartment and locked themselves in a bedroom before calling police.

In the Astoria Dispatch logs, it is noted the caller was whispering, advising someone was in the residence who was not supposed to be there and was armed with a gun. That call came in at 10:51 a.m.

Killed – Josiah Max Fischer (Scappoose, OR)

male

A 27-year-old St. Helens man led Oregon State Police troopers on a high-speed chase Friday that ended in gunfire — and his death — at a country crossroad north of Scappoose, Columbia County authorities reported on Saturday.

Troopers assigned to the St. Helens state police office attempted to stop Josiah Max Fischer for a traffic violation at 6:38 p.m. on Friday on U.S. 30. But Fischer, behind the wheel of a black 1997 Mitsubishi, drove westbound on U.S. 30 and two minutes later turned on Millard Road.

For the next four minutes, troopers Robin May and Justin Oxenrider — in separate patrol cars — chased Fischer as he made a series of turns at high speed on country lanes west of the highway. Fischer aimed the Mitsubishi down Hazen Road, in the community of Warren, where the auto skidded off the pavement at Stone Road.

At 6:44 p.m., county dispatchers heard reports, presumably by police, of shots fired.

ST. HELENS — A prosecutor says an Oregon state trooper was justified in firing at a 27-year-old St. Helens man who displayed a handgun after a high-speed chase.

Killed – Devon Moschetti (Madras, OR)

Devon Moschetti3

BEND — An Oregon man was jailed for investigation of murder and manslaughter after shooting his friend’s brother in the face during a rabbit-hunting trip, authorities said.

The shooting occurred Sunday afternoon near the Crooked River National Grassland south of Madras.

Suspect Montana Silk Marlatt, 24, of Madras fled after the shooting, Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins said, and deputies tracked him down at Boyce Corral, a nearby site for riding horses and holding dog trials.

The victim, 19-year-old Devon Moschetti, had planned to go hunting with two friends. Before heading to the area, they met Marlatt and invited him to go along.

“For unknown reasons, Montana Marlatt intentionally pointed a shotgun at Devon Moschetti and shot him,” Adkins said in a statement late Sunday.

One of the teens called 911 at about 1:27 p.m. and reported that “someone had just been shot in the face with a shotgun” the reported noted.

When a deputy arrived on the scene at 1:37 p.m., he reported that the victim was deceased, and a family member and friend were already on the scene.
