Police sketch released in 2010 Wilsonville attempted murder

WILSONVILLE, Ore. -- Police have released a composite sketch of a suspect who broke into a Wilsonville home in 2010 and shot a man in the head.

The attempted murder happened Aug. 3, 2010, when police say 53-year-old Donald Ray Barham found a man inside his rural home just outside of Wilsonville.

Police say the man apparently demanded food and then money. When Barham said he didn't have any money, police say the intruder shot him in the head.

The next day, a coworker from Wilsonville Lanes Bowling Alley went looking for Barham after the bowling-alley cook failed to show-up at work. Another co-worker said Barham was lucky to be alive.

The shooting initially left Barham blind, but he has since regained partial eyesight.

The suspect is described as white, 35 to 45 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 1 inch in height and with an average build.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office tip line at 503-723-4949. Anyone with a tip who wishes to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers of Oregon at 503-823-HELP.
