The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit continues its investigation of Sunday’s murder-suicide in Orchards that led to the deaths of five family members. 

Efforts are being made to ensure all next of kin have been notified, so names are not being released at this time. It is believed that the suspected shooter was an adult male. The victims appear to be the wife of the suspect, their two adult daughters, and the suspect’s adult brother. 

In the next several days, the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct autopsies of the deceased. The Medical Examiner’s Office will release the names of those involved. 

To clarify the timeline of the event, Clark Regional Emergency Services (CRESA) did not receive a call from the reporting party until just after 1:06 p.m.. The text message from the suspected shooter was sent to the reporting party more than four hours before that time but was not discovered by the reporting party until later in the day. The Sheriff’s Office responded to the welfare check call once dispatch had been called.

Further updates will be made as more information becomes available from the investigation.

CCSO responded to the welfare check in the 11500 Block of NE 92rd Street in the Orchards Neighborhood of Vancouver. CCSO arrived on scene and attempted to contact those at the residence and were unsuccessful. Based on the information about harm to others, possible firearm involvement, and being unable to reach any of the family members in the home, patrol requested the assistance of the Southwest Washington Regional SWAT team. 

CCSO deployed an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) into the home and found several people who appeared to be deceased. SWAT operators and Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) medics entered the residence and confirmed that five people were deceased inside. 

The CCSO Major Crimes Unit (MCU) was called to the scene to investigate.
