PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The suspect in a Clark County shooting Monday morning remains at large, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said. They identified Monday afternoon and said they have probable cause to arrest him.

In an update issued Monday at 4:30 p.m., the sheriff’s office said the man they spent the morning searching for with SWAT and local law enforcement is 40-year-old Kenneth M. Debruyn of Vancouver.

He’s wanted on the charges of first-degree attempted murder and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. There’s also an active felony warrant for Debruyn’s arrest out of Clackamas County.

During the search Monday morning, authorities said they believe Debruyn is armed and dangerous.

Deputies responded to a reported shooting at Dell Terrace Apartments on Northeast Hazel Dell Avenue and Northeast 73rd Street shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday. At the scene, deputies found a man in the parking lot suffering from a gunshot wound to his torso and said he was taken to a hospital but is expected to survive.

Deputies are searching for the person suspected of shooting a man outside the Dell Terrace Apartments on Monday, March 6, 2023 (KOIN).

According to Sheriff’s Office, Debruyn and victim know each other and the incident appears to have “stemmed from an argument involving a girlfriend.”

CCSO said Debruyn drove away from the scene before deputies arrived, but was later spotted by a Vancouver police officer. Authorities chased him but Debruyn crashed a few blocks away. The sheriff’s office said he ran from the scene near Northeast 49th Street and Northeast 137th Avenue.

The Southwest Washington Regional SWAT Team was called in to assist with the search, which the sheriff’s office said was concentrated near a home in the North Image neighborhood that the suspect is connected to. After executing a search warrant on the home, authorities confirmed the suspect was not inside.

During the search, residents in the area were urged to shelter in place.

Debruyn remains on the run. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Dean Telecsan at Dean.Telecscan@clark.wa.gov.
