Lake Oswego police chase stalls businesses, puts schools on lock-in

In the 12 years that Shannon Adams has worked at the Space Age Fuel on Lower Boones Ferry Road in Lake Oswego, he's seen the nearby Walgreen's get robbed. He's watched police cruisers speed down the interstate, sirens blaring.

But he's never seen anything like this.

"I've seen people out here doing a lot of crazy stuff," he told The Oregonian/OregonLive Tuesday afternoon. "But I've never had shots fired within 25 feet of me."

Police arrested an alleged robbery suspect Tuesday after a chase that began in Tigard ended on Lower Boones Ferry Road. The suspect was shot by police near the Walgreens after stopping a white van he'd driven in the pursuit, police said.

As of 1:45 p.m., the fuel station attendant said news crews had abandoned the area, replaced by scores of police officers settling in for lunch while others directed traffic. Lower Boones Ferry Road was roped off from Southwest 63rd Avenue to 65th Avenue.

Business at Space Age was at a standstill following the suspect's arrest.

"We haven't done anything but stand around and see (the police) talk," Adams said.

Meanwhile, three children who were in the van with the suspect were being treated to arcade games and a free lunch at Nicoli's Grill and Sports bar, one of the business's employees told The Oregonian/OregonLive.

John Underhill, one of the restaurant's partners, said he hadn't seen anything out of the ordinary and that the chase hadn't affected business.

"Everything seems pretty normal," he said.

Lake Oswego schools went into lock-in when the pursuit spilled into the Portland suburb, the school district announced on Twitter. The lock-in was lifted after police arrested the suspect.

LOPD reports all suspects accounted for. Lock-in at all schools has been lifted.

The Children's Hour Academy, separated from Lower Boones Ferry Road by the Meridian Square shopping center, also went into lock-in.

Academy Director Michelle Jewett said Portland Police called the school at 10:45 a.m., after which the lock-in was enforced. Twenty minutes later, Children's Hour was given the all-clear.

"Our teachers did a great job of guiding the students through it," Jewett said.
