Large disturbance at Gaiser Middle School - 03/15/19


At approximately 5:40pm Deputies from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office were sent to Gaiser Middle School located at 3000 NE 99th Street on a report of a disturbance.  A 9-1-1 caller reported that there had been a fight between students who had been in attendance at a basketball tournament. The caller also reported that there was a group of teenagers trying to interfere with and were assaulting school officials who were trying to deal with those involved in the disturbance.

Three deputies arrived on scene and were immediately met with verbal hostilities from the large group of teenagers, to include racial slurs, cursing, and threats of assault.   As the deputies attempted to address the individual school staff was trying to detain, the group of teenagers (approximately 60-70 or more)  began to close in around the deputies.  They continued to curse at the deputies and threaten violence against them including death threats. 

The Deputies on scene relayed that they needed immediate cover due to riot conditions.  Numerous officers from the Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol and the Vancouver Police Department responded in an attempt to gain control of the situation.  At one point there were a total of 33 police units on scene attempting to deal with the situation.

The group maintained their agitated and confrontational state with police and school officials.  The school security manager indicated to law enforcement that due to the behavior of the involved group they no longer had permission to be on the campus, and wanted them removed from the property.

Law enforcement made it clear to the group that they were no longer welcome on the school property and were being ordered to leave immediately.  They were advised that failing to leave could result in their arrest for trespassing.  Several individuals refused to leave and were subsequently arrested.  One deputy received minor injuries while struggling with one of the suspects during an arrest.

A total number of 9 juveniles were arrested on various charges to include, Trespass, Fail to Disperse, Assault IV, Assault III, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting arrest.

Male attacked with knife in hazel dell - 03/06/19

On March 6, 2019, deputies with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to stabbing at the 10200 block of Hwy 99 just after 0400 hours.  Three unknown suspects (possibly 2 males and 1 female) attacked a husband and wife transient couple in the woods on the east side of Highway 99.  The camp is located in a small forested area to the northwest of this intersection.  The male suffered a non-life threatening stab wound to the upper back.  There was very little description for the suspects who are allegedly transient as well.  The motive for the attack is believed to be retaliation over a theft accusation.  The suspects are unidentified at this time and were not located.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy DuWayne Layton at


Disturbance leads to standoff - 03/06/19

On 03/05/19 just after 1900 hours, deputies responded to a disturbance at the 15300 block of NE 10th Avenue.  A woman called in to report a disturbance with her boyfriend, which had lasted most of the day.  Two deputies responded and made contact with the woman down the street, and learned she had been assaulted.  The two deputies then went to the residence to attempt contact and possibly arrest the suspect.  As the deputies approached, they heard gunshots come from within the residence and then retreated.  Southwest Washington Regional SWAT was activated and responded.  The scene was treated as a standoff with a barricaded subject.  SWAT was able to make entry into the residence and found the subject deceased.  No further information or names will be released at this time.  Notifications to family still need to be made.
