Suspect in Washington Police Shooting Dies at Hospital

July 21, 2014  | 

A suspect in a shooting that critically wounded a Vancouver police officer in June, died Friday, the result of a suicide attempt Thursday inside his cell in the Clark County Jail.

The Oregonian newspaper is reporting that during a routine check on Thursday, corrections deputies saw that James T. Sapp, 47, was attempting to kill himself, according to the Clark County Sheriff's Office. Deputies intervened, and medical staff provided emergency medical care until the Vancouver Fire Department arrived.

Sapp was taken to a local hospital where he died Friday.

On June 30, Sapp was accused of shooting Vancouver motorcycle officer, Dustin Goudschaal, who was shot seven times during a traffic stop near Northeast 162nd Avenue and Northeast 34th Street. His ballistic vest saved his life.
