FBI investigating shooting, search warrant on the reservation


March 11, 2019

At 1:42 a.m. on Thursday, March 7, 2019, a woman, age 32, suffered a gunshot wound while sitting as a passenger in a vehicle that was being driven on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The woman, a non-tribal member, was transported by ambulance to St. Anthony’s Hospital and then transported by ambulance to a regional hospital in the Tri-Cities. Her injuries are non-life threatening.

At approximately 9:45 p.m. on March 7th, the Pendleton Police SWAT team, in coordination with the FBI and the Umatilla Tribal Police, helped to serve a federal search warrant at a home on the reservation as a part of this investigation. During that SWAT operation, occupants of the house refused to comply with orders to leave the home, and the tactical team deployed CS gas. After the two occupants came out, Umatilla Tribal Police officers arrested them on outstanding local warrants.
