A suspect and a police officer were injured Saturday evening following a vehicle pursuit and shooting, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. Though many details remain unclear, the sheriff’s office posted on Twitter that at 6:46 p.m. the pursuit concluded in Oregon City at the I-205 North onramp from Highway 213.
Oregon City police deployed spike strips to stop the fleeing vehicle.
An “officer-involved shooting” happened at the end of the pursuit, the Twitter post said. The suspect, Gerald Leroy Barnes II, shot at police multiple times, according to a Clackamas County press release. Deputies returned fire.
Barnes sustained minor injuries and was released from the hospital into police custody soon after he was admitted. He is being held at the Clackamas County Jail on charges of attempted aggravated murder, attempted assault, unlawful use of a weapon and attempt to elude.
