PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man shot by a deputy at an apartment in the Bethany area of Washington County has been released from the hospital and taken to jail.

Jeffrey Holmes is charged with attempted murder, assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

Deputies were called out for a welfare check at an apartment complex on 16,000 block of Northwest Laidlaw on Sept. 9.

The deputies made contact with Holmes and said he initially opened the door slightly to talk with them, before suddenly opening the door all the way and attacking them with a knife.

One of the deputies shot Holmes. He suffered life-threatening injuries at the time and remained in the hospital until Monday.

His bail is set at $250,000.
