Deputy shoots, kills man saying he “engaged” deputy

MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputy shot and killed a man south of Roseburg. The World reports deputies went to a residence in Myrtle Creek at about 8 a.m. Wednesday to investigate a domestic violence complaint. State police say 60-year-old Spencer Heckathorne had fled but probable cause was established for his arrest for alleged menacing and recklessly endangering. Deputies and officers located him in a vehicle on a road near his house and police say he rammed two deputy vehicles and crashed into a ditch. Police say Heckathorne exited the vehicle, and was shot once after he “engaged a uniformed deputy.” He died at the scene. An investigation is ongoing.
