YAMHILL COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WILL NOT ENFORCE OREGON BILL 941 REQUIRING GUN CHECKS ON PRIVATE SALES
Yamhill County Commissioners have joined about 20 other Oregon counties to say they are not going to enforce Oregon Senate Bill 941. That law requires a private party to complete transfer of a gun to a seller by going through a gun dealer so a background check can be completed. Yamhill County Commissioners were unanimous in saying that more gun regulation is not the answer to make the public safer. They also believe the law to be uneforceable. Yamhill County Sheriff Tim Svensen is also on record as supporting commissioners actions. Sheriff Svensen stated he did not want to put more burdensome regulations on law abiding citizens. Commissioners voted on a resolution this morning.
On July 1st at approximately 10:14 p.m., Yamhill County Sheriff's Deputies and Newberg Fire Units responded to a report of a helicopter crash in the area of North Valley Road and Dopp Road in rural Newberg.
Upon arrival it was confirmed that a helicopter had, in fact, crashed in a field and caused a wild land fire which was contained and extinguished by fire personnel.
The aircraft was determined to be a 2004 schweizer 300c helicopter. Examination of the aircraft led to the discovery of two deceased occupants. They are believed to be the only passengers in the aircraft. The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
The names of the victims will be withheld pending notification to their families.
The scene will be secured and maintained by the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office pending further investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, which is expected to occur during daylight tomorrow.
YAMHILL COUNTY DEPUTY SHOOTS MAN AFTER TRAFFIC STOP
News Release from McMinnville Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: July 1st, 2015 11:17 AM
At approximately 7:30 this morning, officers from multiple Yamhill County agencies responded to the scene of an officer involved shooting that occurred near the intersection of Hwy 99W and Doran Drive, McMinnville.
One male is deceased at the scene. He is identified as Kevin Lamont Judson DOB: 8/24/1990 (24) of Dayton,.
The incident followed a traffic stop where the male fled from the scene of the stop. Deputy Richard Broyles, a 16 year veteran of the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office gave chase and was the deputy involved.
The incident is being investigated by the Yamhill County Major Crime Response Team (MCRT). The MCRT is made up of investigators from the McMinnville Police Department, the Newberg Dundee Police Department, the Yamhill County District Attorney, the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, the Yamhill Police Department, the Carlton Police Department and the Oregon State Police.
KLYC has visited with persons on location who have talked to first hand eyewitnesses. The following narration is pieced together from second hand accounts, and has not yet been confirmed.
After the traffic stop, a suspect ran across the street, past Christensen Auto Sales and tried to pull open the door of a small distribution office of the Oregonian newspaper. The person inside the building saw a deputy was giving chase and did not want the person coming inside. He held the door shut. The deputy then tased the suspect. The suspect apparently then got into the deputy's patrol car and tried to speed away. Somewhere in this series of events, four shots were fired according to a business employee in the area.
Facebook postings relayed to KLYC from friends of Judson state he was wanted on a failure to appear warrant and did not want to go back to jail.

However, the Go Fund Me campaign is continuing to put money into the account of the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival to ensure a high quality festival continues into the future.
[A message from Newberg Old Fashioned Festival volunteer Chairman: Kimberly Zoutendijk]
Hello Friends and Supporters of Newberg Old Fashioned Festival.
Due to some changes in our funding options for our festival fireworks we are in a bit of a pickle this year to keep the show at the same level as last year. Next year the options reopen to us but in the meantime we need your help.
Newberg Old Fashioned Festival has been a family friendly community event for over 32 years.
The festival is run completely by volunteers and all money collected goes to keeping the festival and its events going strong. As a committee we have worked very hard to keep the festival financially secure and continuing from year to year. All the funds from this campaign will go directly to cover the cost of the festival fireworks and allow us to continue to offer this entertainment free.
