Police investigate fatal shooting, suspect at large

Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a county employee.

Sgt. Robert Wurpes of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office told the Estacada News that the shooting occurred at 10:48 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 224 and Amisigger Road in Boring.

The Sheriff’s Office is not yet releasing the name or other information about the victim.

Wurpes said that no one else was injured in the incident.

Following the shooting, Estacada schools were placed under a level-one lockdown for a period of time despite a planned early release due to inclement weather.

According to an email sent by Wurpes at 11:59 a.m., the suspect is still at large.

Wurpes declined to provide any suspect information for the time being.

Several Estacada area businesses have locked their doors, though Wurpes said this was not at the recommendation of the Sheriff’s Office.
