Initial information leads to the assumption the shooting suspect may have acted in self-defense

On Sunday (Nov. 13) at about 3:30 p.m., the Clark County Sheriff’s Office along with Battle Ground Police Department, responded to a report of a disturbance with a weapon at a residence in northern Clark County off NE Fern Drive and NE Columbia Tie Rd. 

It was reported to 9-1-1 dispatch a person had been shot at the residence following some type of verbal altercation. The 9-1-1 caller, 66-year-old Todd Spencer, told the call taker he had shot 30-year-old Donovan Pulver-Downing. 

Life Flight air ambulance was activated by Clark County Fire District 10 and North Country EMS personnel. On arrival of law enforcement, Spencer was detained without incident. Law enforcement then located a male, Pulver-Downing, inside the house with gunshot wounds.  Pulver-Downing was provided emergency first aid by law enforcement before transferring care to North Country EMS. Pulver-Downing was then transported via Life Flight to an area hospital for medical care.

Clark County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit (MCU) responded to investigate the incident further. It was determined that Pulver-Downing and Spencer are in-laws, and both reside at the residence. A verbal dispute over a vehicle led to an armed confrontation where it appeared both subjects had firearms. The confrontation escalated and resulted in Spencer discharging a firearm striking Pulver-Downing. It appeared Spencer may have acted in self-defense. 

MCU remained on-scene for several hours interviewing other family members and witnesses. Search warrants were executed with evidence and firearms seized. 

At the time of this release, Downing is expected to survive his injuries. This case is actively being investigated by MCU.
