State police snipers shot and captured the suspect in a kidnapping case after a multi-hour standoff at Crescent Lake, freeing his hostage in the process. According to Oregon State Police, Alberto Quiroz Martinez was shot and wounded after he came out of a Crescent Lake Cabin with his hostage Melody Kaye Mickel as a “human shield.” Martinez was immediately taken into custody and transported to an undisclosed hospital while Mickel, who escaped uninjured was removed from the scene by police.

Martinez is alleged to have abducted Mickel, who is described as his former girlfriend, from a Rite-Aid store in Hermiston last Thursday where she worked.

Police were led to the Crescent cabin based on a tip about a vehicle linked to the crime.
