Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a shooting incident with multiple victims at a vacation-rental property shortly after midnight on Dec. 31. One victim was transported to the hospital with a chest wound, and three others had left the scene to seek treatment at area hospitals. Authorities are seeking tips.
At 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020, deputies were dispatched to a report of a shooting with injuries at 9221 SE Idleman Rd., a vacation-rental property in unincorporated Clackamas County.
Deputies were able to get the 20-30 partygoers out of the house. Upon entry, they found one victim with a gunshot wound to his chest who was being attended to by partygoers.
The deputies quickly stepped in and began life-saving measures. Deputies assessed the victim and applied a chest seal to his wound. Deputies declared the scene safe so medical personnel could enter and transport the patient.
The male with the gunshot wound was transported by ambulance to an area hospital by American Medical Response. He is expected to survive.
Deputies then received information that additional shooting victims had already left the scene to seek medical treatment on their own. Deputies and Portland Police Bureau officers were able to make contact with three additional shooting victims at area hospitals.
In total, three males and one female between the ages of 17 and 20 had been shot. All are expected to survive their injuries.
Sheriff's Office detectives and Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) and Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Technicians (CRAFT) responded to the shooting scene to gather evidence and process the crime scene. They received assistance from the Milwaukie Police Department, Portland Police Bureau and Lake Oswego Police Department. The Clackamas County Roads Department assisted with the closure of SE Idleman Road between SE 91st Ave to SE 94th Avenue as the crime scene was processed.
Photos from the investigation scene are attached.
