Law enforcement officials have not released details about why an officer fired a weapon during the incident.

Officials have identified two suspects in a Hillsboro officer-involved shooting Saturday night.

Elliot Satoru Carr and Nicola Elizabeth Kostov, also known as Peacelynn Butterfly Perilloux, were arrested at the Extended Stay America hotel after officers with the Hillsboro Police Department responded to a call of suspicious circumstances, according to a press release from the Washington County District Attorney's Office.

After the incident, Carr was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Sgt. Leland Gilbert, spokesman for the Hillsboro Police Department, would not confirm Monday afternoon whether Carr's injuries were related to one officer firing their weapon at the scene.

Some media reports have said Carr was shot during the incident.

"That is not accurate. The release if you really look at it in detail indicates that there was a shot and the suspect was injured," Gilbert said. "I can't confirm that the injury is not related to the shot yet. But I'm hopeful that tomorrow I'll be able to release more information."

Gilbert said Carr was released from the hospital Monday.

Officials with the Hillsboro Police Department and the Washington County District Attorney's Office would not comment further on the incident.

"The Washington County Major Crimes Team is investigating the officer-involved shooting," read the press release. "We will have no further information available while this investigation is ongoing."

The officer who fired their weapon has not been named by either the Hillsboro Police Department or the Washington County District Attorney's Office.

Gilbert said he hoped to provide additional details in the coming days.

Carr and Kostov appeared for arraignment at the Washington County Jail on Monday afternoon. A probable cause preliminary hearing was scheduled for 4 p.m. Sept. 23.

Carr was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, unauthorized use of a vehicle and identity theft. Kostov was charged with first-degree burglary, unauthorized use of a vehicle and identity theft.
