Jared Michael Padgett ID’d as Oregon School Shooting Suspect

BREAKING:  Troutdale police identify Reynolds High School shooting suspect as 15-year old Jared Michael Padgett. Freshman Emilio Hoffman was shot and killed during the shooting. Padgett had an AR-15 semi-automatic handgun, with nine loaded magazines holding several hundred rounds.

Padgett, a Mormon, also wore a camouflage helmet and ammunition vest when he started shooting just after 8 a.m. The teen, who is from a military family, was angry at his classmates over his presentation about Hitler a week earlier.

Jared Michael Padgett committed suicide in a bathroom after encountering police officers in the school hall. Here’s more on Padgett from the Troutdale Police Department press release:
He was a freshman at Reynolds High School. He arrived at school yesterday morning on the school bus, carrying a guitar case and a duffel bag. He entered the boys’ locker room in the building that housed the gymnasium. He spent a period of time in the locker room, and during that time murdered a fellow student. 

We have not established any link between the student and the shooter. 

Teacher Todd Rispler encountered the shooter in the locker room. As he was fleeing, Mr. Rispler was shot once, suffering a grazing wound to his hip. Mr. Rispler made his way to the office, where he was able to notify the administration, which then immediately initiated the lockdown. 

As the shooter was moving through the main hallway, he encountered officers who were starting to enter from two separate doorways. At that time, he moved into a small restroom. We know there was an exchange of gunfire between one of the first responding officers and the shooter. Based on the autopsy this morning, we do know that the shooter died of a self-inflected gunshot wound. 

The shooter used an AR-15 type rifle in the attack and carried, but did not use, a semi-automatic handgun. Investigators also recovered nine loaded magazines with the capability of holding several hundred rounds. 


The shooter also had a large knife. He was wearing a non-ballistic vest used for carrying ammunition and other items. He also was wearing a multi-sport helmet with a camouflage design.
