The man who was shot by police Tuesday after allegedly holding a woman hostage in a Crescent Lake-area cabin has been released from the hospital and taken to the Deschutes County jail, the Oregon State Police said.
Alberto Quiroz Martinez, 28, suffered a superficial head wound when he was shot by a member of the state police SWAT team Tuesday afternoon. Officials say Martinez had held ex-girlfriend Melody Kaye Mickel, 26, hostage at the cabin. He was shot leaving the cabin, allegedly using Mickel as a human shield.
After his release from the hospital, Martinez was taken to jail on a parole violation warrant. Additional charges are pending relating to the alleged hostage incident.
The police are withholding the name of the OSP trooper who shot Martinez. The officer has been with the OSP for 11 years and is on paid administrative leave following the incident, which is routine in officer-involved shootings.
