19-year-old Emily Taylor killed in the shooting on Highway 211 in Estacada

Upon arrival, deputies discovered a 30-year-old man had been shot in the hand.



A young female teenager tragically lost her life due to a shooting incident, while a man sustained injuries in an incident under investigation by Clackamas County authorities.

It is suspected that the shooting occurred when one vehicle fired at another on Highway 211, just outside Estacada. The incident was reported at approximately 10:50 p.m. on Monday.

The victims were occupants of a Jeep Cherokee, while the suspected individuals responsible for the shooting were believed to be in a Toyota, which could have been either a Corolla or Camry.

According to investigators, both vehicles were traveling in the same direction when the Toyota opened fire near South Poplar Road.

Sheriff’s deputies quickly responded to the scene in an attempt to locate the suspects, but their efforts were unsuccessful.

The 30-year-old man, who had suffered a gunshot wound to his hand, was promptly transported to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

Tragically, the 19-year-old woman lost her life at the scene. While authorities have stated that it is still too early to officially release the victim’s names, family and friends informed Channel3 NOW that the 19-year-old was identified as Emily Taylor.

Theresa Taylor, Emily’s mother, was too heartbroken to speak on camera but described Emily as a kind and imaginative soul. She expressed deep sorrow that her daughter’s life was cut short before she could truly experience it, and now the Taylor family is seeking justice.

According to Theresa, Emily worked as a medical technician and had a passion for caring for the elderly, as well as enjoying activities like crocheting and playing the saxophone.

Emily’s aspiration to become a medical assistant was tragically left unfulfilled. Theresa emphasized that Emily was a memorable and cherished individual, known for her infectious laughter and radiant smile, and was loved by many.

Family and friends are urging anyone with information that could lead to an arrest and provide some measure of justice for Emily’s family to come forward.

The case, identified as #23-23080, is actively being pursued. If you have any information, please contact the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office via email or phone at 503.723.4949.
