The apparent murder-attempted-suicide situation happened in the 15900 block of Swan Avenue. They were taken to separate hospitals — one to OHSU, the other to Legacy Emanuel. Raymond J. Johnson remains in critical condition.

“Investigators believe at this time that he was the shooter,” said OCPD Sgt. Matthew Paschall. “We take all reports of domestic violence very seriously, and our investigators are going to make sure we find out what happened. Our thoughts go out to the family of the victim.”  

Their two children, ages 5 and 7, were home at the time. They attend Holcomb Elementary School, where the Oregon City School District made grief counselors available. An autopsy will be conducted.
