A medical lab tech who fatally shot two students during a robbery in Oregon last month died at age 54, his family has said.
Keith Dutton, 49, was arrested and charged in the April 19 shooting of John Lee and Michael Taylor, both 20.
The two teens were sitting in a car in a parking lot when Dutton walked up to them, opened the door and demanded money, according to a police report.
Dutton fired two shots at the car, which struck the car.
The teens survived.
Dutons attorney, Matt Goss, said the shooting was an act of self-defense.
Denton had been fired from the Portland Medical Center after the shootings.
The medical center said Dutton was not fired for his actions, but because he did not meet standards of care.
In a statement, Denton’s family said the incident left him “shocked, broken and saddened.”
“He never sought to hurt anybody and his actions are tragic,” the statement said.
“Keith and I both love the Portland area, and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.”
