Pursuit in Lane Co.
On 3/24/2024 Lane County Sheriff’s Office was involved in a pursuit with a menacing subject. Deputies were on the lookout for 56-year-old Walter Edward Boss of Junction City yesterday after he made threats to go to a local police station and shoot law enforcement officers. Boss was observed in his vehicle by a deputy near the town of Coburg. Boss pulled behind the lone deputy’s vehicle and began chasing him. The deputy was able to safely disengage and wait for backup. Other units, including troopers with the Oregon State Police, responded to the area and located Boss still driving in his vehicle at which time a pursuit ensued. During the pursuit, Boss pointed a rifle and laser at responding personnel. The rifle was later discovered to be an airsoft rifle that resembles a real rifle. The pursuit ended on Powerline Road where Boss got out of his vehicle with the rifle that had the laser attached. After attempting to injure himself, deputies were able to take Boss into custody. Boss was taken to the hospital due to a minor self-inflicted injury and later released. He was then lodged at Lane County Adult Corrections on Menacing, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering and Unlawful use of a Weapon. This incident involved multiple agencies and the Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Junction City Police Department, Eugene Police Department and Oregon State Police for all the cooperation to resolve this situation.
