Good news! There is still hope yet! This is the way it should be. Grand jury says no charges for man who returned fire at Mystic - KPTV - FOX 12 PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A man who returned fire and killed a gunman at the Mystic Strip Club in southeast Portland will not be charged with a crime, a Multnomah County grand jury ruled Friday. Jonathan Baer shot 43-year-old Thomas Hjelmeland, who later died from his injuries at a Portland hospital, after Hjelmeland showed up at the strip club on Southeast Stark Street wearing a Halloween mask. Police said Hjelmeland started shooting and critically injured bouncer Brian Rizzo. Two other people were wounded before Baer - another bouncer at the club - pulled out his own gun and shot Hjelmeland as he walked out the door. The Multnomah County grand jury decided Baer's use of deadly force was justified under Oregon criminal law; therefore, no charges will be filed against him. Hjelmeland had a long arrest record, including a March 2013 arrest in Multnomah County for unlawful use of a stun gun, tear gas or mace, along with arrests in Washington County and Clackamas County dating back to 2009 on charges including reckless driving, assault and violating a stalking order.
