Clackamas County Sheriff deputies wish to speak with a person of interest after a man suffered a gunshot wound to the head in Welches.
Police responded to a "disturbance" at 25500 E. Welches Road around 9:26 p.m. on Nov. 30, according to a news release.
Deputies at the scene found Eddie Osborne wounded by a bullet to the head. The 25-year-old was provided medical aid and transported to a local hospital. His condition at this time is "unknown," police say.
The authorities say Michael John Vavra, 40, was reported to be in the area at the time, but a Clacakamas County SWAT team was unable to locate him.
"Mr. Vavra is known to frequent Welches, Rhododendron, and Sandy areas of Clackamas County," according to a news release.
Deputies say anyone who spots Vavra should call 9-1-1 rather than approach him.
Vavra was charged with theft of services in Clackamas County in late November of this year, and was also charged with second-degree theft in October.
