Officer and gunman shot south of Portland, hostage OK
GLADSTONE, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say SWAT snipers shot a man at a Subway restaurant after the man shot a police officer and took a woman hostage in Gladstone, about 17 miles south of Portland.
Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Brian Jensen said Monday night that Gladstone police Sgt. Lee Jundt stopped a man on a bicycle Monday evening for a violation.
Jensen says the man pulled a gun and shot Jundt in his police vest before entering Subway and taking a woman hostage.
A SWAT team responded and tried to negotiate with the man, whom Jensen said made several demands and was not giving up.
Jensen says SWAT snipers fired at the man, hitting him, and once he was down, officers entered and got the woman out safely.
SWAT surgeons were sent in and the man was taken to a local hospital by ambulance. His condition wasn’t known.
