***Updated Information 7/2/15***Officer Involved Shooting - 07/02/15
Information about the officer involved shooting incident in McMinnville from yesterday has previously been provided. This office has become aware that misinformation, not provided by Yamhill County Law Enforcement on this issue, has been disseminated on social media and otherwise. The information provided below is intended to both give further information to the public about the incident as well as correct misinformation that has been circulated.

On July 1, 2015 at about 7:30am a Yamhill County Sheriff's Deputy conducted a traffic stop on NE Doran Drive just off of Highway 99W in McMinnville. During the traffic stop the deputy requested a cover unit respond.

As a cover unit was responding to the area, the backseat passenger in the vehicle from the traffic stop, identified as Kevin Lamont Judson, exited the vehicle and ran across the highway into the shared parking lot of Christensen Auto Sales and Tire Factory. The other two (2) occupants of the stopped vehicle, driver and passenger, stayed with the vehicle as did the deputy who conducted the initial traffic stop.

Deputy Richard Broyles, responding to the area, encountered Judson in the parking lot of Christensen Auto Sales. Although details of the incident are continuing to be compiled, it is clear that Deputy Broyles and Judson were involved in a struggle and ultimately Judson was shot. At the time he was shot, he was alone in the driver's seat of Broyles' patrol vehicle.

At the time of the shooting, Deputy Broyles and Judson were the only two present. There were uninvolved witnesses in the area who are cooperating with the investigation and providing statements.

Earlier today, the autopsy of Kevin L. Judson was performed by Dr. Young of the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office. Cause of death was determined to be from two gunshot wounds.

This investigation is continuing. Anyone with information about the matter is asked to call the McMinnville Police Department tip line at 503-434-2337. Further inquiries should be directed to the Yamhill County District Attorney's Office at 503-434-7539.

Man arrested after causing disturbance and illegally entering parked vehicle (Photo) - 06/22/15
On June 22, 2015 at 5:24 pm McMinnville Officers responded to a male subject causing a disturbance at the Circle K, located at 840 NE 3rd Street. The male was then seen walking into and being directly escorted out of The Deluxe Tavern, 711 NE 3rd Street. After being escorted from the business the male walked across the street to another business and started kicking the windows.

McMinnville Officers arrived in the area and located the male in a parked vehicle on NE 3rd Street near the intersection of NE Irvine Street. The male was identified by officers as Richard Hewitt McDaniel (27) of McMinnville from numerous past police encounters. McDaniel did not own the vehicle nor did he know the owner of the vehicle. Officers attempted to extract McDaniel from the vehicle without success. Officers were able to deploy a Taser through the open passenger side window and ultimately extract McDaniel from the vehicle. He was then taken into custody and lodged at the Yamhill County Correctional Facility. McDaniel is initially charged with Probation Violation and will be pending further charges.
