Klamath grand jury clears trooper in shooting

KLAMATH FALLS, OR (AP) -

A Klamath County grand jury decided Wednesday that an Oregon State Police trooper was justified in shooting a man who was holding a woman hostage during a standoff at a Crescent Lake cabin.

The May 1 shooting wounded 28-year-old Alberto Quiroz Martinez as he used a knife to hold the woman as a shield.

Martinez was treated at a Bend hospital for a minor head wound and jailed.

The woman was not injured during the rescue.
