About 09:30 AM today a Clark County Sheriff's deputy spotted a suspicious occupied vehicle parked at a turnout at a remote area along the East Fork of the Lewis River at the 33800 Blk of NE Sunset Falls Road. The deputy made contact with the male vehicle driver and female passenger. The driver started the vehicle's engine and put the car in gear ignoring the deputy's commands and attempting to get away. The deputy fired one round from his service handgun. The suspect vehicle sped off east bound toward Sunset Falls campground.
Additional deputies responded to the area attempting to locate the suspect. Approximately 90 minutes later, the vehicle was spotted driving back west bound on Sunset Falls road. The suspect vehicle crashed into the rear of a commercial style flatbed truck that was also westbound on Sunset Falls road operated by an uninvolved party. The suspect vehicle was pinned in with a Sheriff's patrol vehicle and both the male driver and female passenger were taken into custody. No one was injured in the incident.
Both the adult male and adult female had outstanding felony arrest warrants. Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating the circumstances of the incident. The deputy will be placed on routine paid critical incident leave, a standard practice for any officer involved shooting. The names of those involved are not being released at this time. No further information is being released at this time.
