MADRAS, OR -- The Crooked River Ranch man wanted in connection with his mother’s homicide was arrested Thursday morning, following a standoff in Washington County. Police surrounded a car near a Tualatin McDonald’s, after 29-year-old Gavin Smith-Brown refused to exit the vehicle. He eventually came out and was taken into custody. The bomb squad later detonated a suspicious item found in the car.

 

The body of 65-year-old Gayla Smith was found Sunday inside the Crooked River Ranch home she shared with her son.

 

Smith-Brown is now in the Jefferson County Jail, charged with Murder, First and Second Degree Manslaughter, Criminally Negligent Homicide and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle.
