(Portland, OR) -- The Multnomah County District Attorney says a sheriff's deputy was justified when he shot a woman during an incident in the Lloyd District in October. The District Attorney says Deputy Rory McPherson had a suspect in handcuffs when a woman in a car the suspect was associated with pulled a gun and pointed it at the deputy. McPherson fired and the woman drove away with the handcuffed man in the car. They crashed a short distance away. The man was arrested and the woman was hospitalized with a gunshot injury and then arrested after being released from the hospital.
