HILLSBORO, Ore.– Washington County Sheriff’s Sergeant Jeremy Braun returns to full duty today. Two years ago in August, he was one of two deputies shot multiple times following a couple of hour chase on foot in the heavily wooded area near Hagg Lake.
The man had robbed a home nearby stealing some guns. Sergeant Braun received life-threatening injuries when he was shot in the neck and chest. He was life-flighted to OHSU.
Sgt. Braun spent months in the hospital and physical therapy. He had to learn to walk and talk again.
He will be stationed at the Hillsboro office.
