Update on Friday “Gunshots Reported” Incident

Saturday, October 23rd, 2021

Friday’s Newberg campus lockdown was prompted by a “highly intoxicated” man firing shots into the air at his home near the Chehalem Aquatic Center. Newberg-Dundee Police Chief Jeff Kosmicki told media that police responded to a possible shooting in the 1800 block of Orchard Drive.

Witnesses told police a man came out of a residence and fired several shots in the air, but they lost sight of him. Officers were able to reach the suspect by phone, police said, but he appeared to be intoxicated and refused to come out of the residence.

Based on the circumstances, police said they left the area and shut down the street to all cars and pedestrians as they attempted to deescalate the situation. 

The incident lasted more than two hours before it was resolved. 

If you are feeling a need to talk to someone, please reach out to a faculty or staff member, university pastor, or our Health and Counseling Center. We offer free confidential counseling sessions for our students. Just send an email to set up a private appointment.
