Tara-Alexis Ford, 33, shot intruder David Daniel McCrary, 59, who had clambered into her 10-year-old daughter's bedroom. The Oregon State Medical Examiner's office ruled McCrary, who had a history of mental illness, died of a single gunshot wound. Officers confirmed McCrary, who had no connection with Ford, did not have any significant criminal history.

Fortunately her daughter, aged 10, and five-year-old son, were in a different room at the time of the break-in. Ford has not been arrested following the shooting. Detectives are considering whether the shooting was in self-defense. She has been assisting officers with the investigation which will be reviewed by Mulnomah County District Attorney's Office. Police received the emergency call at 1.47am on Sunday morning after Ford contacted them claiming she had shot dead an intruder. Officers arrived to find McCrary's body in the bedroom. McCrary was originally from the City of Gresham, to the east of Portland.
