The officers involved in the shooting during Duran's apprehension are identified as Sergeant Michael Ware and Officer Joshua West, both of the Eugene Police Department. Currently, Ware and West are on administrative leave.

At 4:29 a.m. Saturday morning, police received reports that a man broke into a home on 13th Avenue and Washington Street and stabbed Donald Rivers, 36, of Eugene in the neck and shoulder. Police responded to the scene and began looking for the suspect.
