Wounded state Trooper Cederberg hit by a dozen bullets in Christmas shootout

Share

Family says Nic Cederberg nearly paralyzed by bullets fired by fleeing homicide suspect James Tylka on Christmas night.


          Nic Cederberg, an Oregon State Police trooper injured in a Christmas night shootout, was shot 12 times in the arms and torso, his brother said this week.

Jeff Cederberg posted on the family's GoFundMe account on Tuesday that his brother had given him permission to begin sharing details about the events of that night, which left two people dead and Cederberg in serious condition at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital.

"What many don't know is how bad it really was that night," Jeff Cederberg wrote. "Most can speculate but few know what really happened."

Jeff Cederberg's comments are some of the first detailed accounts of the shooting, which investigators have been hesitant to give out, citing the pending investigation by the Washington County Major Crimes Team and the district attorney's office.
