Dundee shooting ruled justifiable

Yamhill County District Attorney Brad Berry has ruled the June 24 shooting of Dundee resident John Branch by Newberg-Dundee police officer Chris Rasmussen was justifiable.

The 58-year-old Branch was shot and wounded after allegedly threatening his wife, then advancing on responding police officers with what Berry described as a hunting knife. Rasmussen, an officer with 16 years experience, the last six with the Newberg-Dundee department, fired one shot at Branch. He was accompanied on the domestic disturbance call by Joseph Eubanks, who joined the force six months ago.

Branch was transported by Life Flight helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland for treatment of the gunshot wound. He has since been released and charged in connection with the disturbance involving his wife.

Branch is lodged in the Yamhill County Jail on $150,000. His next court appearance is 3 p.m. Monday. He is represented by privately retained attorney Mark Geiger of Salem.
