SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - A Lane County Sheriff's deputy shot a woman who was holding a gun when deputies responded to a physical fight between family members along Cedar Flat Road in Springfield.
It all started as a domestic dispute Monday night around 10:00 p.m.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a woman with a gun.
When she refused to drop the weapon one deputy used a Taser on the woman, but they say that didn't stop her.
Officials say the woman turned toward the deputies holding a handgun. Before she could shoot, the other deputy shot her.
The Sheriff's office says it took well over an hour to secure the scene. "Our problem in this case, is a large tract of land, multiple dwelling structures out buildings, a residential building that's occupied, not compliant, to cover that amount of property with that amount of buildings with a hostile involvements, that we had, it takes a lot of officers to do that safely," said Capt. Byron Trapp of LCSO.
After the shooting, two men showed up and had to be tackled to the ground.
Anthony Koloski, 32, has been arrested for interfering with police and resisting arrest.
The two deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave for now.
The woman remains in the hospital, and the Sheriff's office is not releasing the names of the deputies or the suspect at this time.
The Lane County Interagency Deadly Force Investigations Team was called in to investigate the shooting.
This team, supervised by the Oregon State Police, consists of investigators from the Oregon State Police, Eugene Police Department, Springfield Police Department and the Lane County Sheriff's Office.
