Deputies have not yet named the deceased person.
(MULINO, Ore.) - Deputies in Clackamas County say shots were fired and a body was found as police served an arrest warrant last night on an 80-year old woman wanted on charges related to growing, posessing and delivering marijuana; an herb currently finding increasing acceptance in the country's medical and political communities.
Detective Jeffrey Green with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says around 10:30 p.m., two deputies went to 13262 S Macksburg Rd to attempt to take two persons into custody on arrest warrants.
"The warrants were related to an investigation in the Fall 2008 of a marijuana grow. At about 10:39 p.m. deputies reported shots fired and a person down in the residence," Green said.
"Clackamas County Sheriff's Office SWAT and detectives responded to the location. After SWAT secured the residence a female was removed from the residence via ambulance due to medical issues unrelated to the incident."
He says 80-year old Marjorie Crawford was arrested on outstanding warrants for Manufacturing, (Police terminology for growing) Delivery, and Possession of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
She is currently lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
The Clackamas County Medical Examiner came to the scene and took possession of the deceased person in the residence.
The body has been transported to the Oregon Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. The person's name will be released after positive identification is made and next of kin is notified, Green said.
The deputies involved in the incident are uninjured and have been placed on administrative leave per department policy.
The deputies names will be released at a later time. For additional information regarding officer involved shootings, a video is available on the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office website entitled "Inside the Tape." Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
