Portland, Oregon (KOIN) — Around 2:15 pm on August 8, 2019.. A Washington County lawmaker and members of the Hillsboro and Tualatin police stations fired shortly after a 54700-block homeowner on Gaston’s Southwest Skoggins Valley Road reported that a man in camouflage had stolen a gun. I was involved in.

The thief took out two guns (both “long guns”) from a locked gun cabinet outside the house and walked into the woods. The two lawmakers were ambushed near Southwest Skoggins Valley Road near the northern end of Lake Hag, hours after the search began.

That night, one adjutant, Chris Iverson, was treated and released. Another Jeremy Brown was seriously injured and airlifted, requiring long-term hospitalization and severe rehabilitation. He was injured in the neck and upper body and had to learn to walk and talk again.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Brown returned to full mission on Monday.
