Man Sought By Police Charged With Attempted Murder

A man being sought by police after an incident in which shots were fired on Saturday near Shaniko is facing multiple charges including first degree attempted murder.  Wasco County District Attorney Matthew Ellis says 23-year-old Logan Cantwell is alleged to have fired shots at a Wasco County Sheriff’s Deputy near Shaniko on Saturday as he attempted to elude arrest along Highway 97.  No one was injured in the exchange of gunshots, but Cantwell escaped and is still at large.  Ellis indicated Cantwell is believed to be in the Gorge on either the Oregon or Washington side, and he may be going by either Logan Taylor or Kendall Myers.  Ellis described Cantwell as a white 23-year-old male, five-feet-nine-inches tall, with short strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes, and weighing about 182 pounds.  Cantwell is considered armed and dangerous, and if he is seen, the public should not approach him, but contact law enforcement immediately.
