Clark County Sheriff’s Office detectives are searching for a suspect in an early Monday (March 6) shooting in Hazel Dell.

With the assistance of the Southwest Washington Regional SWAT Team, CCSO detectives served a search warrant on a residence that was believed to be associated with the suspect in the area of the vehicle crash.

The suspect, later identified as 40-year-old Kenneth M. Debruyn, was not located at the residence. Detectives are following up on several leads at this time but the suspect remains outstanding and is considered armed and dangerous.

The suspect and victim involved in Monday’s shooting were known to each other according to the CCSO report. It appears this was not a random act and the altercation may have stemmed from an argument involving a girlfriend. 

On Monday at about 1:37 a.m., the Clark County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Dell Terrace Apartment complex, located at 7422 NE Hazel Dell Ave., after multiple 9-1-1 callers reported hearing a gunshot and screams in the area. Responding deputies located an adult male in the parking lot with a single gunshot wound to the torso. Deputies learned the suspect in the shooting was known to the victim and witnesses.  The suspect had left in a known vehicle. 

At about 2:20 a.m., a Vancouver Police Officer spotted the suspect vehicle in the North Image neighborhood of Vancouver. The vehicle attempted to elude police but crashed after only a few blocks. The suspect fled on foot. The suspect vehicle was recovered by law enforcement at the intersection of NE 49th St. and NE 137th Ave. 

The Southwest Washington Regional SWAT Team was activated to initiate a search for the suspect. At this time, resources have been focused on the residence with which the suspect is known to be associated, located near where the vehicle was recovered. 

The victim of the shooting was transported to an area hospital to receive treatment for the gunshot wound which is not considered life-threatening at this time. 

This case is being investigated by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Team.
