Shots Fired

Posted on 30th March 2011 at 08:05

Jake Koski, 38, of Longview is in the Columbia County Jail, after he allegedly fired several shots at a car parked near Clatskanie. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on Beaver Falls Road at about 3:15 yesterday afternoon, where they reported that several rounds had been fired into a vehicle. The suspect was seen leaving in a black pickup truck, which was stopped near the intersection of Beaver Falls Road and Delena-Mayger Road. Koski was arrested at that time, and four guns were taken from the truck, including a .380 semi-automatic pistol. Deputies say that’s the gun Koski used to fire two rounds into one of the tires on the parked car. Koski is now being held on charges of first-degree criminal mischief, criminal trespass with a gun, reckless endangerment, menacing, and four counts of felon in possession of a gun. A woman who’d been in the pickup with Koski was questioned and released.
