REDMOND, OR -- The man hit by a patrol car during contact with officers, last week, has died. The Tri-County Major Incident Team is now working with the state Medical Examiner’s Office to investigate the incident that occurred on the street in front of the St. Charles hospital in Redmond.
Thursday afternoon, police responded to reports of a man pointing a gun at passing cars, on North Canal Blvd. Redmond PD says 63-year-old Michael Gaskill still had an apparent firearm when officers contacted him. At some point, Gaskill was struck by an officer’s patrol car.
He was flown to St. Charles Bend with serious injuries; he died Saturday.
