The six-month-old child shot by his father Wednesday has died from injuries sustained in the gunshot wound sustained in the incident.

At about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 7), Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) patrol deputies responded to a report of a disturbance with a weapon at a residence in the area of NW 152nd Street and NW 4th Place in the Salmon Creek neighborhood of Vancouver.

The 9-1-1 caller, an adult female, reported that her husband had just shot their infant child, shot her, and then shot himself. As CCSO deputies arrived, they made entry into the residence and found three people down on the ground from apparent gunshot wounds.

CCSO deputies began triaging and providing first aid to the three subjects. Medical personnel from American Medical Response (AMR) and Clark County Fire District 6 (FD6) were called into the residence.

The female caller was transported to a local trauma hospital with gunshot wounds. She was intubated and taken into surgery shortly after arrival at the hospital. She was described as being in critical condition. The infant child was transported emergently to a local children’s hospital with a gunshot wound. The child was described as being in critical condition. The suspected male shooter was pronounced dead at the scene and not transported. 

Clark County Sheriff’s Office Majors Crimes Unit (MCU) and Tactical Detective Unit (TDU) responded to the scene and took over the investigation. 

This case is being actively investigated by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit with assistance from the Vancouver Police Department Major Crimes Unit. 

On Thursday, the deceased man was identified as 42-year-old David E. Stansbury Jr. The wife and infant child have yet to be identified.

Heavenly Father, please be with this woman and child. I pray for healing or if it is not to be, please take them home to be in your loving arms. We are crying for them. In Jesus mighty name, AMEN
