OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Oregon City police have identified an 88-year-old as the suspected gunman at a house fire who wounded a volunteer reserve police officer.
A SWAT team from the Clackamas County sheriff’s office killed the man, who was identified Monday as Lawrence Cambra.
The officer, 41-year-old Robert Libke, was airlifted to a hospital Sunday after the shooting. Police have not released information about his condition.
Police say Libke and a regular Oregon City police officer were the first to respond to reports of an armed man at the scene of a house fire. The man confronted and shot Libke.
Authorities believe the fire was set, but haven’t disclosed a motive for the arson or the shooting.
