Neil Bruce Marcy
, 45. The Forest Grove man was shot to death by officers from the Forest Grove and Cornelius police departments after he confronted them with a gun in each hand outside an apartment complex. Marcy had called 9-1-1 and said a shooting was about to take place. Officers went to Marcy's home in the College Place Apartments at 2607 21st Ave. and pleaded with him to come out peacefully. Authorities said Marcy repeatedly held a gun to his own head, randomly threatening to start shooting.
Marcy fired one round into his ceiling and told police, "You guys are gonna have to kill me. We're gonna see how good your target practice has been." Marcy asked whether the building had been evacuated of neighboring tenants, then left his apartment with a gun in each hand, pointed skyward and said he was ready to see his Lord. He lowered the firearms in the direction of the police and
was shot by Forest Grove Officers Matt Smith and Tom Siciliano, and Cornelius Officer Doug Schuetz. Two of the officers had helped Marcy find treatment in the past. The district attorney's office concluded the shooting was a suicide because Marcy wanted police to kill him.
