PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force was involved in a shooting in north Portland on Tuesday afternoon.

The Oregon Department of Corrections has issued a warrant for Jonathan Crowley, 31, arrest on Sept. 24, according to the U.S. Marshals. Crowley was wanted for crimes “against person and who had fled from correctional supervision with the Multnomah County Parole and Probation Office.”

Portland police were called to the scene on the 7500 block of North Newell Avenue at 3:30 p.m. The task force had spotted Crowley inside a parked car and tried to arrest him.

Crowley instead used his car to threaten the officers; a marshal shot him.

The U.S. Marshal said he was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving treatment and is expected to be released once recovered.

No officers were injured.

Portland Police Bureau is leading the investigation into this incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact Portland Police Detective Erik Kammerer Erik.Kammerer@portlandpolice.gov or 503-823-0762, or Detective Shaye Samora Shaye.Samora@portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0768.

Mr Q

So the PPD was called to the scene because the US Marshals were apprehending a Fugitive? .. oh wait ... must have been a “Sanctuary” fugitive and they were hoping to have the PPD run interference ?
