A Washington County deputy who was shot several times while serving an eviction last week has “multiple surgeries ahead of him,” according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputy Charles Dozé was shot seven times July 26. Three shots hit his body armor, two shots hit each of his arms, and two shots hit his head, according to sheriff’s officials. They say the shots boke bones in his upper left and right arms, and he lost his left eye and multiple teeth. He continues to recover in a hospital.
On the day of the shooting, Dozé and other deputies tried to contact Kristafer Graves, 34, at his apartment in Tualatin, according to police, when Graves opened fire on the deputies. At least one deputy returned fire and Graves retreated into his apartment, they said.
A SWAT team responded to the scene. After entering his apartment, the team found Graves dead in the bathroom, though police said it’s unclear if he was shot by the deputies or if the wound was self-inflicted.
