Convenience store robbery suspect shot dead by police in Klamath Falls

11-17-2014 Oregon:

Klamath Falls police officers shot and killed a man Sunday evening suspected of robbing a convenience store.

Officers from the Klamath Falls Police Department, the Klamath County Sheriff's Office and Oregon State Police pursued a trio of suspects leaving the Frontier Market in Klamath Falls allegedly with stolen cash.

Lenny Miles, 37, and two other suspects were on foot about two blocks from the market when the confrontation with officers took place, said Rob Patridge, Klamath County District Attorney. Miles was shot in an exchange of gunfire. He was pronounced dead at 9:41 p.m. at Sky Lakes Medical Center.

Two other suspects who allegedly assisted Miles in the robbery, were uninjured. Garrett Michael Peterson, 27, and Samantha Darlene Robinson, 26, were arrested and lodged in the Klamath County jail on first-degree robbery and criminal conspiracy charges.

No police officers were hurt. Three officers were put on administrative leave while the investigation is conducted. Because all three of the major law enforcement agencies in the county were involved in the shooting, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office will lead the investigation.

Miles was a suspect in multiple local criminal cases, ranging from meth possession and failure to register as a sex offender. "We had four pending cases against him with warrants out for his arrest," Patridge said. ..Source.. by Jeff Manning
