Two suspects in custody; remaining suspect considered armed and dangerous
VANCOUVER –The SW Washington Regional Major Crimes Team is continuing the investigation into the shooting death of Clark County Sheriff’s Office Detective Sergeant Jeremy Brown.
On Friday (July 23) at about 6:52 p.m., Sgt. Brown was in his vehicle conducting surveillance at 3508 NE 109th Avenue. Other units in the area on the same detail were unable to reach the deputy on the radio and around the same time a citizen heard what sounded like gunshots and saw a male inside a vehicle bleeding and called 9-1-1.
Two males and a female fled the location and were pursued by law enforcement. Their vehicle crashed near Padden Parkway and Interstate 205 and the three occupants fled on foot.
After an extensive search, involving multiple law enforcement agencies, one of the males, Abran Raya-Leon, 28 years of age, and the female, Misty M. Raya, 35, were contacted by police. Abran Raya-Leon and Misty M. Raya were both arrested on unrelated felony warrants. The third male, identified as Guillermo O. Raya, 26, is still outstanding.
Guillermo O. Raya is considered armed and dangerous, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest in connection with the shooting. His whereabouts are currently unknown.
The investigation is continuing and nothing further is available at this time.
