Shooting timeline

from the Oregonian

Clackamas County investigators have reconstructed the events of Sept. 8, the day 27-year-old Fouad Kaady was killed during a confrontation with police. Some of this timeline also comes from independent sources and 9-1-1 and police radio recordings:
6:50 a.m.: Kaady, wearing only a sport coat and pants, drives his green Toyota pickup into a parking lot at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham. Construction workers tell investigators he looks high and is blowing marijuana smoke out the windows. Kaady gets out, sticks eight cigarettes in his mouth and lights them.

7 a.m.: Kaady drives away when security guards arrive, his truck jumping several earthen berms.

7:30-8 a.m.: Kaady, wearing a suit, arrives at the home of his father, Rachid Kaady. His behavior seems fine.

9:47 a.m.: Kaady buys two packs of cigarettes at a convenience store at Southeast Stark Street and 214th Avenue. He tells the store owner, Rudd McGarrity, that he's "not okay."

12:30 p.m.: Kaady parks his pickup at a Rick's Custom Fencing, Southeast 202nd Avenue and Stark Street. Workers there report a man, wearing only boxer shorts, running toward 202nd and Stark. Kaady soon drives toward Sandy in his parents' Buick.

1:27 p.m.: A northbound car smashes into the back of 19-year-old Tiffany Stanko's car on Southeast Bluff Road. Stanko complains of neck and back pain. "He totally rear-ended me. . . . It's an old Buick . . . blue."

1:27 p.m.: Carol Vinnacomb, who lives on Southeast Bluff Road, reports seeing a blue Buick pass her after running into the back of another car. The driver looks at her with "wild look in eyes." Smoke is pouring from the car's engine compartment.

1:29 p.m.: Greg Elwell of Boring calls 9-1-1 after a Buick rear-ends his pickup several times. "They've got to get somebody after this guy."

1:30 p.m.: A car rear-ends the pickup of Frayne McAtee of Boring, then veers off Bluff Road and catches fire in the ditch.

1:31 p.m.: Clackamas County sheriff's Deputy David Willard reports that he's en route to the call.

1:32 p.m.: Sandy police Officer William Bergin is en route to the call.

1:37 p.m.: Tamara Sedgewick calls 9-1-1 to report that the driver of a burning Buick is in the woods nearby, naked and "extremely combative." She says a man who went to help the driver was assaulted. She tells dispatchers she thinks the driver has a gun and is "high on drugs."

1:56 p.m.: A caller to 9-1-1 reports seeing a naked man walking north of 362nd Avenue, "all cut up."

1:56 p.m.: Deputy Willard jumps into thepatrol car with Officer Bergin because his patrol car is surrounded by firetrucks. The two drive north on Bluff Road and left onto 362nd Avenue.

1:58 p.m.: Elaine Thornlimb calls 9-1-1 to report that a naked man just jumped onto her car on 362nd. "I'm not sure what he's gonna do . . . he's not in the right mind right now. He's walking towards Cottrell School. I see the police now. I'm afraid he might try and attack them."

1:59 p.m.: Willard and Bergin stop on 362nd, just south of the Bluff Road intersection. A man sits cross-legged about a foot off the shoulder of the road. Willard sees the man is seriously injured and calls for Code 3 medics and backup. Dispatch asks to confirm the location, but Willard does not respond. Both officers try to subdue Kaady with Tasers. Kaady laughs and pulls Taser barbs out of his skin. Kaady leaps onto the police car, moving from the hood to the roof. He shouts at the officers "I'm going to kill you."

2 p.m.: Willard calls again for Code 3 medics and says shots have been fired. "Suspect is down," Willard tells dispatchers. Paramedics are waved to where Kaady lies.

2:04 p.m.: "He's gone," a paramedic tells Willard.
