Office worker fires handgun at intruder

Originally ran here in The Register-Guard on May 17, 2001


An employee at a physician's office in Eugene fired a semi-automatic pistol at an intruder Wednesday afternoon after an irate man broke into the locked business and threatened employees, police said.

No one was injured in the incident, which began about 4:45 p.m. when a man began telephoning and threatening employees at the Oregon Podiatry Clinic at 2893 Oak St.

The caller's ex-wife used to work at the office, and the man was upset with employees, Eugene police said.

The employees locked the doors and called police.

But the man arrived before police and pounded on the doors, trying to force his way inside, police said.

The man eventually broke a glass door behind the office, and an employee with a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol aimed it at the man and warned him the police were on the way.

The suspect advanced on employees despite the warning, and the employee fired a round at him.

The bullet exited a rear window and lodged in a car parked near the back door.

The man then fled through the broken door, but returned and was arrested.

Jason Alan Hall, 32, of Springfield was arrested on the charge of second-degree burglary.

Hall was lodged at the Lane County Jail and will be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. today.

Police said the clinic employee who fired the handgun legally owned the firearm.

The employee wasn't charged in the shooting because he was protecting property and people.
