Beaverton, Oregon

From Beaverton’s of December 22, 2005
Man shoots car prowl suspect

A 27-year-old soldier just back from Iraq shot a man he said came at him with a screwdriver, after he allegedly tried to steal a car outside the soldier's Beaverton apartment.

Jose Ruiz Gomez of Gresham -- the suspected car prowler -- will be charged with second-degree theft and unlawful entry of a vehicle.

He was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Police are not releasing the name of the man who shot Ruiz Gomez. But they did say they are viewing the incident as a case of self-defense.
