Too close to home
We had a shooting in Oregon City this afternoon.
It was just down the street from my house.
The house at 841 Linn Avenue was on fire. When the police and fire crews showed up, one of the policemen was shot in the face. He was life-flighted to a Portland hospital. The suspect is dead. Names aren't being released until tomorrow.
Mark and I frequently walk past that house when we are out for a walk. It looks, you know, normal.
There is news about the shooting here and here.
Sorry for such downer news on a Sunday evening, but this isn't the kind of thing I can post every day. At least, I sure hope not! Prayers for the police officer in the hospital, and for the families of all involved.
