BEAVERTON, Ore. – Police said the 18-year-old man who wrestled a gun away from an officer at Beaverton City Hall and fired off a shot last week was high on mushrooms and had “superhuman strength.”
Jared Steven Leone walked into Beaverton City Hall on Friday evening and told a person at the police department’s records desk that he was overdosing on drugs and needed help. Three officers came out to the lobby and that’s when police said Leone swung a punch at one of the officers and a “melee” ensued.
Detective Sergeant Jim Shumway reviewed surveillance video of the fight. He said it took the officers six minutes to restrain Leone and take him into custody.
Leone grabbed a gun from one of the officers and fired a single shot during the fight. No one was hit. The bullet went into a wall with an empty room on the other side.
