Police: 'Claim of self-defense' in fatal shooting after car crash

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Police found a man dead from a gunshot wound at the scene of a car crash Wednesday night.

Police identified the deceased as David Paul Crofut, 53, of Springfield.

No arrests have been made as of Thursday morning. Police identified the case as a "death investigation."

"It remains open and uncharged at this point because there's been a claim of self-defense," Sgt. David Lewis said.

The Springfield Police Department asks anyone with information about this incident to call (541) 726-3714.

The incident concerned neighbors.

"We saw the police lights coming through the window," said Darlene Harper, who lives nearby. "Probably an hour or two later my husband was getting ready for bed, and he says 'Are the lights still on out there?' So we walked outside. The road was closed, and there was tape everywhere.They were still collecting evidence - shell casings. I thought it was an accident,like some kind of spill maybe?

"If there was a shooting and everything is closed and they're collecting shell casings, did those bullets maybe go into a house? That's cause for concern."

Officers responded to the scene of the crash at South 57th Street and Bob Straub Parkway just before 8 p.m.

They found Crofut's body in the street, a short distance from the two vehicles involved in the crash.

Officers located and seized a firearm.

According to police, the crash involved a new, unlicensed GMC Denali driven by Gerald Roy Strebendt, 34, of Springfield and 2013 Nissan Rogue driven by Crofut.

Police said the shooting took place a short distance from the crash scene after the accident.

Lewis said the "preliminary indication" is Strebendt was the shooter.

Police still need to review data and interview people to complete their investigation, Lewis said.

The district attorney is involved in the investigation. Any decision on whether or not to pursue criminal charges once the investigation is complete will be determined by prosecutors.

Earlier story

Both drivers got out of their cars and got into an argument. One driver then pulled out a gun and shot the other driver; who later died.

The victim had a female passenger at the time of the crash. Police are continuing their investigation.

There arent details, obviously, but it is surprising to me that a high level tournament competitor like him would feel the need to shoot a guy 20 years older

If the man was shot while he was behind the wheel attempting to ram Strebendt or his vehicle, or the girl, then that is some impressive personal defense on the behalf of the shooter/victim

Sounds like he was shot outside the car, though. Given that his body was in the street.

Well, if he did indeed ram his vehicle into his, that's intent to kill. If they crashed as a result and dude that rammed him came after him, I assume that Strebendt thought that his and his gf's lives were still threatened and took appropriate action.

Assuming that's how it happened.

Don't you think the original act of intentional ramming by a dude that already has an assumed protection order against him gives the right to Strebendt to defend himself and his gf?

So yeh, my point is that the victim tried to be a murderer and it didn't work out too good...assuming what happened, happened the way it happened.

No, Gerlad was a marine sniper, and a Marine siper INSTRUCTOR before he started training.  This is established fact.

One detail I think is important to note, Gerald called 911 after the car hit him but BEFORE the shooting.

He's now the first person to win a sanctioned MMA match by a twister and shoot someone.
