D.A.: Shooting at Veneta Apartment Justified as Self Defense

An intruder attacks a Veneta man in his own home..
The intruder is shot dead.
The District Attorney's Office is calling the shooting... self defense.
It all started with a knock at the door.
When it was over... one person was dead... the home owner suffered some minjor injuries.
It happened at the Applegate Apartments inside unit four.
Deputies say a man knocked on Tony Hernandez's door around five A.M.
Hernandez says he opened the door and was attacked by a man using a baton-type weapon.
The man told Hernandez he was going to kill him.
"He was hit a number of times.. struggled around the bottom floor of the complex moving around.. it started at the door.. ended up towards the back," said Lt. Randy Smith, with the Lane County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies say Hernandez was able to get away.
He got his shotgun... ended up shooting the intruder several times.
The sheriff's office says Hernandez didn't know the suspect.
Meanwhile, residents around here say there isn't enough police presence in their town.
"As for the neighborhood, i love veneta but I do think we need more police patrol," said Maggie Robertson, who lives nearby.
At a press conference Friday afternoon... the Lane County District Attorney said Hernandez was justified in shooting the intruder because he feared for his life.
At this time there's no motive as to why the man attacked Hernandez.
The intruder hasn't been identified.
An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.
Hernandez was treated for injuries to his head and back.
The investigation continues.



Sounds like a good shoot.

Lane county seems to be pretty cool on self defense shootings. I've seen one that even I thought was a bad shoot and no charges were filed. Kinda surprises me, with Eugene being so liberal and all.

I too have heard of some around here that seemed kind of questionable but ended up being alright. The cops around here seem to be alright, and not too bad. I think the hippies here give us a bad name. I know the sheriff signs off on all NFA stuff. I would rather live here than Multnomah County.
