No officers were injured; suspect’s condition unknown
VANCOUVER — An unidentified man was shot by officers Tuesday in Vancouver. No officers were injured. The suspect’s condition was unknown at the time of this report.
Vancouver Police responded Tuesday at about 11:15 a.m. to a physical disturbance involving two males involved in a physical fight in the area of NE Stapleton Rd. and E. Fourth Plain Blvd. When officers arrived, they located one male unconscious on the ground. According to police reports, the other male refused police commands to drop sharpened objects he was holding. Three Vancouver Police Department officers fired at the suspect.
C-TRAN Communication and Public Affairs Manager Christine Selk told Clark County Today that a C-TRAN security official was dispatched to the scene prior to the altercation between the two men after a report of an intoxicated person at a bus stop at the location.
“When our security employee got there, that person ran across Fourth Plain and ran into the man who had the rebar and an altercation ensued,’’ Selk said. “Our security employee was still on the other side of Fourth Plain and saw this unfold and then called police.’’
The Regional Independent Investigative Team, led by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, will conduct the investigation into the officer involved shooting.
When contacted by Clark County Today, Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Brent Waddell said he didn’t have any additional information at the time of this report.
