Autopsy results: Clackamas man shot twice in the head
by Cheryl McDermott

The Oregon State Medical Examiner completed an autopsy on an armed 31-year old Clackamas man with a history of mental health issues who was shot by a sheriff’s deputy Saturday during a confrontation when police were responding to a domestic disturbance “man with a gun” call.

“Aaron Damien Ganon died as a result of two gunshot wounds to the head,” Dr. Larry Lewman stated.

When Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene to the Twin Creek Apartments at 11500 SE Sunnyside Road about 11 p.m., February 9, they saw Ganon flee the scene in a vehicle. He reportedly was driving erratically and ignored the flashing lights of the patrol cars before he made an “abrupt evasive maneuver” and stopped in the parking lot of the Sunrise Middle School, deputies reported.

According to an earlier news release, several deputies and a police dog arrived on scene, and Ganon didn’t comply with the deputies’ commands then “brandished a handgun in a life-threatening fashion.”

Ganon was shot by a deputy and died at the scene. “Reportedly, only one deputy sheriff discharged his weapon in response to this armed threat,” the sheriff’s office stated, adding that the involved deputy’s identification probably won’t be released until mid-week.

The sheriff’s office earlier released a statement regarding Ganon’s alleged attempts at suicide.  In a situation they called tragic, they stated that Ganon had made at least three prior suicide attempts, and had been transported as recently as January 22, by a deputy to a local Portland hospital for a similar mental health-related issue.

As per normal policy and procedure in circumstances of this nature, the deputy who fired the fatal shots has been placed on paid administrative leave during the course of an investigation by the Clackamas County Inter-Agency Crime Team.
