Update 4: Clark County Sheriff's Office Officer Involved Shooting February 4, 2021 - 02/10/21

Vancouver, Wash. –On February 9, 2021, Detectives from the SW Washington Independent Investigative Response Team (SWIIR) completed the last of the interviews of the three Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies that were involved in the officer involved shooting that occurred on February 4, 2021. Below is a synopsis of the information gathered as part of the ongoing investigation.

On February 4, 2021at approximately 7:37 p.m. the Clark County Sheriff's Office began responding to the 6500 block of NW Jordan Way for the report of suspicious activity involving two vehicles circling the area. The caller to 9-1-1 expressed frustration with the "drug house" and "constant barrage of issues effecting the neighborhood". Since June of 2020, there have been over forty (40) calls for service or responses to an address in that vicinity.  

Deputy Agar, Deputy Troupe and Deputy Boyle began responding to the area. As Deputy Boyle entered the area, he noticed that a bronze colored vehicle with a modified exhaust leaving the area towards 68th Street. Deputy Boyle was able to get behind the vehicle, a Mercedes Benz with Oregon plates, and noticed that the vehicle also had a defective rear light. Deputy Boyle then conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle by activating his emergency lights and the vehicle came to a stop just north of the intersection of NE 2nd Avenue and NE 68th Street.

Deputy Boyle made contact with the driver who identified himself with a Washington State identification card as Jenoah Donald. Mr. Donald could not produce insurance or registration information for the vehicle upon request. During this time, Deputy Troupe arrived at the location and walked up to the passenger side of the vehicle as a cover officer as Deputy Boyle began to return to his vehicle.

As Deputy Troupe was watching Mr. Donald from the passenger side of the vehicle, shebecame concerned about several objects inside of the vehicle, most specifically a "ball-handled" objectwith a three to four inch sharpened "stake" on the end which was near the center console of the vehicle. Deputy Troupe instructed the driver several times to place his hands in a visible location,due to her concern of his immediate access to this object. Mr. Donald did not comply with this command and instead created space between his lower back and the driver's seat, placing his hands out of view and into this created space and subsequently produced a cell phone and a pair of metal pliers.

Deputy Boyle, who was alerted to the escalation at the stopped vehicle, exited his vehicle. By this time Deputy Agar had also arrived at the location. Deputy Boyle approached the vehicle with the intent to calm everything down and remove Mr. Donald from the vehicle. Deputy Boyle opened the front door of the vehicle as Deputy Troupe approached from behind the vehicle. Deputy Boyle instructed Mr. Donald several times to exit the vehicle, but he did not comply. Deputy Boyle and Deputy Troupe then tried to escort Mr. Donald out of the vehicle, but he was resistive to this and began to struggle. Deputy Troupe attempted to gain "pain compliance" which had no effect.  At around this time, Deputy Boyle continued to struggle with Mr. Donald, in an attempt to get him out of the vehicle. Deputy Boyle performed a closed-fist strike with his left hand to the nose area of Mr. Donald, which also had no effect. Deputy Boyle then felt Mr. Donald actively pull on his outer ballistic vest and pull him into the interior of the vehicle. Mr. Donald continued to pull Deputy Boyle towards him. Deputy Troupe indicated that she was concerned that Mr. Donald, whose right arm was free, was going to gain access to the implement previously described and use this to assault Deputy Boyle, who was in a compromised position being pulled into the vehicle with his right side pressed against Mr. Donald and his left hand on the floorboard of the vehicle. Deputy Boyle issued multiple commands for Mr. Donald to let go of him, which were not obeyed.

The vehicle’s engine had been turned off during this encounter but during the struggle with Deputy Boyle the vehicle was turned back on by Mr. Donald. The deputies could hear the sound of the engine revving and the vehicle’s "wheels spinning". Deputy Boyle continued to attempt to push up from the floorboard with his left hand and to pull away from the grip of Mr. Donald but was unable to free himself. Deputy Boyle felt the vehicle begin to move forward, and fearing he was going to be killed, he drew his firearm (Deputy Boyle is left-handed) and gave Mr. Donald a verbal warning to stop or he would be shot. During the struggle with Mr. Donald, Deputies Agar and Troupe also expressed fear that Deputy Boyle would be seriously injured or killed, given his compromised position. Deputy Troupe, who was also actively struggling with Mr. Donald, was also fearful for her own safety. Mr. Donald did not comply and did not let go of Deputy Boyle, at which time Deputy Boyle fired two shots, one striking Mr. Donald. Deputy Boyle then was able to push away from the grasp of Mr. Donald and the vehicle, which began travelling in a northwest direction under power until it impacted a fence in a neighboring yard.

All three deputies then approached the vehicle, removed Mr. Donald from the vehicle and began rendering aid. Mr. Donald was transported to an area hospital where he remains hospitalized.

Detectives from the SW Washington Independent Investigative Response (SWIIR) Team, led by the Vancouver Police Department, are investigating the officer involved shooting. A search warrant for the vehicle driven by Mr. Donald that evening has been signed by a Clark County Judge and the search and processing for evidence located in the vehicle will be conducted by detectives from SWIIR in the next few days.

The investigation is ongoing and nothing further is releasable at this time.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available and will be sent out from the SWIIR Team via media release.
