Police say David John Engebretson, 50, of Milwaukie, died during the shoot-out on January 5.

POLICE PHOTO - Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies responded to an exchange of gunfire that left a man dead in Oak Grove on Jan. 5. A man with an active warrant was shot and killed by a Clackamas County Sheriff's deputy during an exchange of gunfire, police say.

The Sheriff's office identified the involved officers as Deputy Scott Krause — an CCSO employee since Februrary, 2016 — and Deputy Trevor Wolf, who has been with the force since June, 2017.

The Sherrif's Office did not specify how each officer was involved in the shoot-out.

But authorities say one deputy found a person sitting in a car around 3:10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5 and found the situation suspicious.

The car was parked on a short road that leads to the Oak Grove Methodist Church, located at 14700 S.E. Rupert Dr.

The officer radioed for back-up and a second deputy arrived, according to a police narrative.

What happened next is unclear — but the officers "engaged" the person inside the car, who refused to exit the vehicle. A shoot-out occurred, with both sides firing.

The dead man inside the car was identified as 50-year-old Milwaukie resident David John Engebretson.

Engebretson died of a gunshot wound. The deputies were unharmed, and have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

Police say the investigation continues, but the autopsy and family notification have been completed.

Engebretson was charged with identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit card in Clackamas County in October, 2018, according to court records.

He was charged with unlawful use of weapon, reckless endangering and second-degree criminal mischief in July.
