33-year-old Joseph Tedrick was killed May 22 in an officer involved shooting in Wisconsin.
Tedrick had been wanted on multiple warrants -- including one for Attempted Murder stemming from a September 2018 incident where he fired on a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputy.
At about 3:48 a.m. on September 23, 2018, a Sheriff's Office deputy had responded to a 911 call regarding a suspicious person and a vehicle in the area of SE Bluff Rd and SE Serban Rd near Sandy.
When the deputy arrived in the area, she located the vehicle. As the deputy pulled up to the vehicle, she heard what sounded like a gunshot and something hit her marked patrol car. The deputy then left the area and parked a safe distance away to wait for additional deputies.
Before returning to the area, the deputies could see a flickering light coming from the location. The 911 caller reported also hearing a gunshot -- and told dispatchers the suspicious vehicle was now on fire. The 911 caller also reported seeing the suspect run from the vehicle to the east.
Deputies attempted to locate the suspect that night, but were unsuccessful. At the time, they were not certain if the suspect -- later determined to be Tedrick -- had actually fired a gun. Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) later confirmed that he had; they examined the vehicle and determined the patrol car had been struck by a bullet.
Clackamas County Sheriff's detectives took on the case, and identified Joseph Michael Tedrick as the suspect. Canby PD also assisted with the investigation. The case was forwarded to the Clackamas County District Attorney's Office and presented to a Grand Jury. As result, Joseph Michael Tedrick was indicted on Attempted Murder and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Tedrick was killed in an officer involved shooting in Ashland, Wisconsin.
A U.S. Marshals-led task force operating in the Western District of Wisconsin, which included local enforcement agencies, were attempting to apprehend a male subject with a warrant at a residence in Ashland. While attempting to apprehend the subject, the subject entered a vehicle and struck and then pushed a U.S. Marshal's vehicle for a distance. As the subject was attempting to flee in the vehicle, law enforcement observed the subject handling a firearm. Law enforcement fired on the subject and hit the subject in the car.
Tedrick died at the scene.
