Apparently the kidnapping suspect who held is ex-girlfriend at knife point during hostage negotiations with OSP at a Crescent Lake cabin is not only crazy, he’s also luckier than a rabbit’s foot.
According an OSP news release, Alberto Quiroz Martinez received a “non-lethal” wound to the head when he burst out of the cabin where he had been holed up for hours while police tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a surrender. Police said Martinez was using his hostage as a shield when a 35-year-old OSP sniper shot Martinez in the head, allowing his hostage to escape and police to take the suspect into custody.
How do you get shot in the head by a police sniper and live. It’s not like the guy was aiming for his leg.
According to police, Martinez was taken to a Bend hospital and treated for a “superficial head wound” before being transported to the Deschutes County jail on a parole violation. We suspect that’s the least of his worries at this point.
