Vancouver police shoot armed suspect

Police say Cacy Jordan was armed with a gun, threatened family members

VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN 6) — A man shot by police on Saturday is expected to make a full recovery, officials said.

The matter is still being investigated by the Clark County Regional Major Crimes Team, but preliminary information shows that at 10:48 p.m., police responded to a home in the 16200-block of Northeast 37th Street, a spokesperson said.

The caller told dispatchers a man, later identified as 37-year-old Cacy L. Jordan, was armed with a gun and was threatening family members inside the home, police said.

Patrol officers and on-duty SWAT team members arrived and found the suspect who “refused commands from the officers at the scene,” police said.

An officer fired and shot Jordan, police said.

Jordan was transported to a local hospital with non-threatening injuries. He remains in police custody at the area hospital.

Authorities said he will be booked on two counts of domestic violence assault in the first degree, pending release from the hospital. Additional charges are possible.

No further information was expected to be released Sunday evening.
