KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) -- A Klamath County grand jury decided Wednesday that an Oregon State Police trooper was justified in shooting a man who was holding a woman hostage during a standoff at a Crescent Lake cabin.
The May 1 shooting wounded 28-year-old Alberto Quiroz Martinez as he used a knife to hold the woman as a shield.
Martinez was treated at a Bend hospital for a minor head wound and jailed.
The woman was not injured during the rescue.
