Call Shelton Thursday, March 13, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-9 Report: Deputy justified in shooting By NATALIE JOHNSON natalie@masoncoun com An independent investigative team concluded last week that Mason County SherifFs Deputy Douglas Smith acted correctly when he shot a suspect in the hand Feb. 21. "They did a great job," said Mason County Sheriffs Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling, of the two deputies, Smith and Scan Dodge, who responded to the inci- dent. Peter Jamie Ross, 50, of the 200 blck of Southeast Channel Point Road vas charged Feb. 25 with felony harassment, air the altercation Feb. 21. A declaration of probable aus writ- ten by Dustin G. Breen, detective ser- geant with the Lewis County Sheriffs Office, gave the details of the shooting. Dodge and Smith responded at about 10:40 a.m. to reports of a man in the woods in the 200 block of Southeast Channel Point Road threatening to,soot somebody. The two deputies began searching the woods between the house "on Channel Point Road and a house in the 4600 block of Arcadia Road. They found Ross crouched iy a tree in the woods, and identified themselves as Mason County Sheriffs officers, aecerd- ing to the report. According to Breen's report, "Ross was pointing something at them Lria manner as if pointing a firearm." The deputies identified themselves and asked him to drop what they thought was a weapon. Spurling said deputies later learned Ross was holding a cordless phone while lying on his stomach behind a tree. "It appeared to (Smith) it was a scope of a rifle," Spurling said. According to Breen's report, Ross claimed the object he held was a gun and said his finger was "Super-Glued to the trigger." After Ross refused to drop the object, Smith fired his gun twice and hit Ross once in the hand. Ross's injury was not life-threatening. According to Breen's report, Rose "continued to behave in an agitated state," as deputies transported him to the hospital. The incident was investigated by the Sheriffs Office as part of the Region 3 Sheriffs Office Critical Incident Investi- gation Team, which includes Thurston, Lewis, Pacific, Grays Harbor and Mason counties. Breen concluded his reported by say- ing, "Peter Ross, through his words and conduct, placed deputies Smith and Dodge in fear of a lethal assault, re- sulting in Deputy Smith's use of deadly force." Smith was placed on administrative leave during the investigation, but is now back at work, Spurling said.
