Detectives Want To Know Why a Gun Was Left On A Toilet

The Clackamas County Inter-agency Major Crimes Team is seeking help from the public to identify a location and the owner of a pistol as part of their investigation into the officer-involved shooting that occurred in Milwaukie on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

A Milwaukie Police Department officer confronted a suspicious person who was possibly involved in a disturbance near SE Monroe St and SE 42nd Ave that evening.

The subsequent stop resulted in the officer using a Taser, followed by an exchange of gunfire with the suspect. The suspect has been identified as Douglas Joseph Teter.

Teter was arrested that evening a short distance away.

At the time of arrest, Teter was in possession of a Springfield XD .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol.

Detectives believe that Teter may have recently found this pistol in a bathroom. Investigators were able to find what they believe to be a photo of the pistol in the bathroom where Teter found the weapon.

The Sheriff's Office is seeking help from the public to identify both the location of the bathroom where this photo was taken and the owner of the pistol.
