Bobby Smallwood Wiki – Bobby Smallwood Biography

Oregon police confirmed that a Portland hospital security guard Bobby Smallwood was shot and killed after a person opened fire inside the medical center on Saturday morning. The shooting suspect also died, police confirmed. The Portland Police Department said officers responded to “threats inside the hospital” around 11 a.m. (PDT) at Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital. The suspect was armed with “at least one firearm,” police said.

The shooting occurred on the fifth floor of the hospital near the maternity unit, said Sgt. Kevin Allen said at a press conference on Saturday night. Police also confirmed in a press release that the suspect had fled the scene after the shooting and that the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) responded to the surrounding areas.

The hospital remained closed while police searched for the suspect. Police first thought the suspect had fled to a nearby Fred Meyer grocery store, which they evacuated and searched before vacating the building. “We’re not sure the suspect was ever there,” Allen said.

Surrounding police made a “tactical effort” to locate the suspect, who they determined was in a vehicle. Police officers from the Portland East Precinct and Gresham police apprehended the suspect in the vehicle in Gresham. SERT and CNT officers responded to assist with the stop, as did Multnomah County Sheriff’s Deputies, police said.

During the suspect’s confrontation with police, police fired shots and the suspect was killed, police said. No officers were injured. The hospital security guard who was shot was taken to a Level 1 Trauma Center, where he died despite further treatment efforts that saved his life, police said.

Jonathan Avery, the hospital’s director of operations, called the shooting “an extremely frightening situation.” “We really want to make sure that people don’t come to Good Samaritan today until everything is cleared up and we’re back and open,” Avery said. Following the incident, Portland Police Department Chief Chuck Lovell praised hospital staff and law enforcement for their coordinated effort.


“This is a sad day for the staff at Legacy Health, and our hearts go out to the family, friends and co-workers of employees affected by today’s tragedy,” Lovell said. “Overall, hospital staff and law enforcement did a great job responding to this incident, and I am grateful for everyone’s coordinated efforts.”Read More……
