From the McMinnville News Register… confirming that nothing good ever happens at a 7-11 store after dark!
“A Linfield College student was stabbed to death and a suspect in the stabbing was shot and killed by a McMinnville police officer about 11 p.m. Saturday at the 7-eleven convenience store, 901 S. Baker St.
The victim, Parker Moore, a 20-year-old male sophomore majoring in business management from Woodinville, Wash., was stabbed multiple times and transported by Life Flight helicopter to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland where he died.
The suspect, a male believed to be in his 30s, was transported by McMinnville Fire Department ambulance to the Willamette Valley Medical Center where he died.
The Yamhill County Major Crime Response Team was assembled to investigate the incident. The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office was designated the lead agency because of direct involvement by McMinnville police.
Capt. Tim Svenson of the sheriff’s office gave this account:
Police responded to a reported stabbing at 7-eleven. When officers arrived, they located the student who had been stabbed inside the store by an unknown suspect who had fled the scene.
The student was a customer, contrary to social medial postings that identified him as a store clerk.
With officers on scene, the suspect returned to the store, confronted them and the shooting ensued in the parking lot.
The name of the victim was identified Sunday morning by Linfield President Thomas Hellie in a letter posted on the college’s website.
“We are all still in shock, but we know that it is important to speak to counselors, to support each other as we mourn, and to think about and pray for Parker’s family and friends,” Hellie wrote. “We have lost a valued, important member of our community and all of us share in the grief.”
The sheriff’s office has worked closely with Linfield officials to ensure proper notification to students and staff.”November 16, 2014 at 5:51 pm #3200outsiderParticipant
Back in the 70s when I worked at various 7-11’s, all I ever had to deal with were the occasional shoplifter, streaker, drug addict, drunk and transvestite. Now, there’s no way I would ever take a job at an convenience store ever again. It’s just too dangerous.November 16, 2014 at 6:33 pm #3202skepticalParticipant
Outsider, whats your issue with trans people? Exactly what was it that person did that made it a problem for employees? Hmm?
