The Curry County Major Crimes Team is investigating a pursuit which included an officer involved shooting last night on House Rock View Point Road, north of Brookings in Curry County.
Preliminary information from investigators indicates that shortly after 11:00pm on Sunday night a Brookings Police Department officer tried to stop a silver, 1982 Honda Civic, for a traffic violation in Brookings. The vehicle fled north on Highway 101 from Brookings until about milepost 351 when it turned west on House Rock View Point Road, which dead ends. As two officers from the Brookings Police Department pulled in behind the vehicle near the roads end, the suspect, identified as MARSHALL B. RANDALL, age 29 of Crescent City, turned around and sped toward them.
Both officers fired as the vehicle approached and one was injured when the Honda struck him. RANDALL continued after the impact and fled the area. The second officer was not injured during the incident.
RANDALL was taken into custody at approximately 5:01 a.m., this morning after a homeowner in the area of Eggars Road, north of Brookings, called 9-1-1 to report a suspicious person trying to break into a car. As troopers, deputies and officers responded to the area they located RANDALL and took him into custody without further incident. He was not injured during the Rock View Point Road shooting or subsequent arrest.
RANDALL is in custody on the following charges:
* Attempted Aggravated Murder (x2)
* Assault II
* Attempted Assault II
* Attempt to Elude Police with a vehicle – Felony
* Reckless Driving
* Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle
* Burglary I
* Criminal Mischief I (x2)
Additional charges may be added following a review by the Curry County District Attorney’s Office.
