BORING, Ore. -- A man who had violated a restraining order died after a chase and shootout near Boring early Tuesday morning, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.
He was identified Wednesday as Nathaniel F. Macalevy, 44, of Boring. An autopsy showed the cause of the death was a gunshot wound. The sheriff's office released no information on the manner of the death.
The incident began about 11 p.m. Monday when deputies were dispatched to the 17500 block of Southeast Ten Eyck Road about a violation of a restraining order.
The woman who filed the restraining order told deputies the suspect was heavily armed, wearing a helmet and vest, and was on the property. Deputies initiated a SWAT call out and took the woman to a safe place.
Tactical officers were unable to locate the suspect on the property. Around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, SWAT officers spotted the suspect's work van and tried to make a traffic stop with lights.
The suspect fled and a chase took them all to the suspect's home in the 13200 block of Southeast 312th Drive.
The suspect, in a helmet and vest, got out of the van and fired on the deputies, hitting several patrol cars. Deputies returned fire.
The sheriff's statement said the suspect's body was found "behind the property" but offered no other details. Earlier, KXL reported that the body was next to a barn. No deputies were injured.
The names of deputies involved in the shooting have not been released. They are on paid administrative leave.
The sheriff's office said a crime scene on 312th Avenue will have the street closed between Highway 212 and Southeast Church Road for several hours.
