Nuts about home

Suspect, officers trade gunfire before chase, lethal hit-operate

Suspect was hospitalized with various gunshot wounds

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A suspect was taken into custody immediately after exchanging gunfire with Keizer police and main them on a car chase — fatally placing a pedestrian in the system.

At 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Keizer law enforcement responded to stories of a suspicious car at the rear of a company at the corner of River Highway and Dearborn Road. When officers arrived, they confronted two grownup gentlemen in the vicinity of the car or truck, which was decided to be stolen.

When officers approached, a single of the males exchanged photographs with numerous officers. He then fled the scene in the stolen vehicle. Officers say the other guy stayed on the scene and was cooperative.

Meanwhile, the fleeing suspect was heading southbound on River Highway. As he was roaring as a result of the River Street and Cummings Lane intersection, the driver struck a pedestrian who was crossing the avenue.

Sadly, the pedestrian endured fatal accidents and was pronounced useless. Their identity has not been produced at this time.

A shorter time afterwards, Keizer and Salem police officers had been ready to halt the suspect near Cherry Avenue and Salem Parkway. A standoff ensued — but the man ultimately surrendered and was taken into custody.

He was then taken to the medical center to handle numerous gunshot wounds. There is no word on his recent ailment.

A overall of six Keizer officers have been associated in the capturing and have been positioned on administrative leave, per typical protocol. Keizer Law enforcement Section has not introduced any of their names.

The Oregon State Police will lead the investigation into the taking pictures and the pedestrian fatality.

This is a establishing story.
