The Linn Benton Major Crimes Team has submitted this investigation and forwarded their findings to the Linn County District Attorney's Office. We would like to thank the Corvallis Police Department and the Benton County Sheriff's Office for their assistance with this investigation. Any further information will be released by the Linn County District Attorney's Office. Please contact the Linn County District Attorney for any further questions. 


On Sunday, April 28, 2024 at approximately 6:25p.m., Linn County Sheriff’s Office and Oregon State Police were involved in an officer involved shooting on I-5 near exit 226, south of Tangent. Earlier in the afternoon, at approximately 3:00 p.m., two suspects, Cameron James Bielman, age 30 and Yasmina Destinee Teal, age 30, both of Anacortes, Washington were involved in a shooting in Coburg, Or. This shooting critically injured one male. The two suspects fled the area and allegedly stole a black Honda Civic. 

Three hours later, at approximately 6:00 p.m., the Honda and suspects were located by Lane County Deputies and Oregon State Troopers and a high-speed pursuit began. Linn County Deputies joined the pursuit. The vehicle proceeded northbound on I-5 from exit 209 where spike strips were successfully deployed, and the vehicle slowed. The Honda crashed along the shoulder of Interstate 5, near exit 226. Gunfire came from the Honda and deadly force was used by 2 Linn County Deputies and 4 Oregon State Troopers. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and the female passenger was transported to an area hospital with crash and gunshot injuries that are non-life threatening. No law enforcement members were injured during the incident. 

Law enforcement members have been placed on paid administrative leave by their respective agencies which is standard after deadly force incidents. The Albany Police Department in coordination with the Linn County District Attorney’s Office continues the officer-involved shooting investigation. The Oregon State Police Major Crimes Team is investigating the Coburg shooting and other felonies.
