Oregon City Police Dept

At about 3:30 pm yesterday, an Oregon City man called 9-1-1 and told dispatch he had been shot by his roommate, 31-year-old Daniel Craig Wiese, inside their apartment at the Mt. View Apartments, 1840 Molalla Ave.  Officers arrived a short time later.  We were able to determine the victim was in a bedroom.  Our officers and Clackamas County deputies were able to break out the bedroom window and enter the bedroom not knowing were the gunman was.  The officers and deputies were able to evacuate the victim through the window and he was transported to OHSU with life threatening injuries.

The Clackamas County Inter-Agency SWAT and CNT teams responded.  The team deployed gas in an attempt to get Mr. Wiese to peacefully surrender.  During the deployment one team member fired a shot but Mr. Wiese was not hit.  Mr. Wiese ultimately exited the rear of his apartment but was not cooperating.  Less lethal weapons were deployed and Mr. Wiese was ultimately taken into custody.  Mr. Wiese was transported to an area hospital for evaluation and then lodged at the Clackamas County jail.  Mr. Wiese is being held without bail on one count of Attempted Murder, one count of Assault I, and one count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

The Oregon City Police Department along with the Clackamas County Major Crimes Team is investigating the initial shooting.  The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office and the Major Crimes Team is investigating the officer involved shooting.
