Police Say Renter Pulled Pistol on Deputies Serving Eviction NoticeSalem-News.com
The man was taken to Portland Adventist Hospital.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - An Oregon man reportedly pulled a gun on deputies serving an eviction notice this morning and then turned suicidal. It is a sad story and the way it developed was called an unusual turn of events.
Deputies in Multnomah County Sheriff's Office were serving an eviction around 10:00 AM at the Mountain View Apartments on SE Division Street when 62-year old Kenneth F. Danneman pulled a gun out from his rear pocket, according to reports.
Deputy Travis Gullberg, Public Information Officer with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, said "Deputies were able to quickly gain control of Mr. Danneman before he could use the weapon on himself or others."
Deputies Rick Coufal and Mike Heffernan were the deputies present, Gullberg says. "The tenant answered the front door, and as the deputies were explaining the eviction process he put his right hand behind his back."
Gullberg says that is when Deputy Heffernan focused his attention on the tenant's hand, and proceeded to enter the apartment with Deputy Coufal.
"Deputy Heffernan saw a piece of silver metal in the tenant's right rear pocket, immediately after which the individual pulled the pistol out of his pocket and pointed it towards his own head. Deputy Heffernan ripped the gun out of Mr. Danneman's hand and both Deputies immediately gained control of Mr. Danneman and his weapon."
Kenneth Danneman was later taken to Portland Adventist Hospital on a police hold after stating that he was suicidal.
