GLADSTONE, OR (KPTV) -

Gladstone police Tuesday identified the man who allegedly shot an officer and barricaded himself inside a Gladstone Subway restaurant with a hostage Monday.

Police said they tried to stop 45-year-old Jeffrey Carl Giddings on a bike for a traffic violation around 6:20 p.m. on Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard.

There was an outstanding warrant for Giddings' arrest for possession of heroin in Klamath County, according to Gladstone police.

Giddings allegedly refused to cooperate and shot Sgt. Lee Jundt before barricading himself with a woman inside a Subway restaurant at 19520 S.E. McLoughlin Boulevard.

Jundt was shot in the vest and is expected to be OK.

After Giddings failed to meet demands made by a SWAT team, officers fired several shots at the suspect.

Giddings was shot twice and suffered non-life threatening injures and is being treated at a Portland hospital. He will be booked into the Clackamas County Jail.

The hostage and others inside the Subway were not injured.
