Apparently the kidnapping suspect who held is ex-girlfriend at knife point during hostage negotiations with OSP at a Crescent Lake cabin is not only crazy, he’s also luckier than a rabbit’s foot.

According an OSP news release, Alberto Quiroz Martinez received a “non-lethal” wound to the head when he burst out of the cabin where he had been holed up for hours while police tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a surrender. Police said Martinez was using his hostage as a shield when a 35-year-old OSP sniper shot Martinez in the head, allowing his hostage to escape and police to take the suspect into custody.

Whaaa?

How do you get shot in the head by a police sniper and live. It’s not like the guy was aiming for his leg.

According to police, Martinez was taken to a Bend hospital and treated for a “superficial head wound” before being transported to the Deschutes County jail on a parole violation. We suspect that’s the least of his worries at this point.
