A wanted man was shot by deputies after investigators said they found him slumped over in a stopped car and he flashed a handgun.
It happened at around 7:40 a.m. Friday near the intersection of the Illahe crossing overpass and Interstate 5 in Salem.
Investigators released additional details about the case over the weekend.
Witnesses reported a possible drunk driver weaving all over the road, before stopping and "passing out" Friday morning.
Deputies responded and found a silver 2006 Acura TL sedan with Oregon plates and a man inside slumped over the steering wheel.
The Marion County Sheriff's Office said two deputies made contact with the man and while standing close to him, he brandished a gun.
Deputy Dale Huitt, 48, then shot the suspect who has been identified as Michael Wylie, 48.
He was taken to the Salem Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators are not releasing the number of times Huitt, a fulltime deputy in Marion County since 2006, fired his gun.
It was later discovered the car Wylie was in was reported stolen from a home in Tigard at nearly the same time deputies made contact with him Friday morning.
Investigators also learned a warrant was issued for Wylie in Salt Lake City, UT for a parole violation. The warrant stated he should be considered armed and dangerous and had violent tendencies, as well as being an escape risk.
Additionally, police in Edmonds, WA, identified Wylie as a home invasion robbery suspect on April 23. Tigard police also identified him as a suspect involving an altercation with an officer early Friday morning.
In that situation, police said Wylie ran away from a crash scene and pointed a gun at an officer who was running after him. The car involved in that crash had been reported stolen to the Seattle Police Department.
Wylie was released from the hospital and taken to the Marion County Correctional Facility where he is being kept on the parole violation warrant.
He is also charged with unlawful use of a weapon and being a convicted felon in possession of a gun. Additional charges may follow.
Deputy Huitt has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure when a law enforcement officer uses deadly physical force.
Investigators would like anyone with information regarding this investigation to contact Keizer Police Department Detective Tim Lathrop at 503-390-371, ext. 3481.
