Vancouver police officer shoots man accused of threatening family with gun

VANCOUVER, Wash. – A Vancouver police officer shot a man accused of threatening his family members with a gun late Saturday night.

Cacy L. Jordan, 37, remains in police custody at an area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. Jordan will be booked on two counts of Assault I DV, pending release from the hospital. Additional charges are possible.

Police said the officer who shot Jordan was Christopher Douville, 29. Douville has been a Vancouver police officer since April of last year, and was previously employed with Spokane, Wash. police.

Douville is on paid administrative leave, which is standard police procedure.

Police officers and the SWAT team were called to a home on Northeast 37th Street around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said Jordan refused to surrender. Douville shot him minutes later.
