Lebanon Man Dead After Confrontation with Deputies

Linn County deputies were dispatched to 29380 Speasl Road, near Lebanon, on Thursday, May 30, at 8:16 p.m., in response to a reported domestic dispute which involved a firearm.

While on their way, a firearm was reportedly discharged at the residence. Deputies arrived and located the reported suspect, Gino Anthony Marcoccia, 49, of Lebanon, outside the residence. Marcoccia was armed with a rifle and advanced aggressively toward one of the responding deputies. Marcoccia did not comply with any commands given by the deputies to drop his rifle. Marcoccia with the gun in hand advanced directly towards one of the deputies, closing the distance with him.  That deputy discharged his firearm and Marcoccia fell to the ground and dropped the rifle.

Deputies immediately removed the rifle to a safer distance and began providing emergency medical aid to Marcoccia. However, he was declared deceased at the scene.

No law enforcement members were injured during this incident.

Pursuant to Linn County Use of Deadly Force (SB 111) protocols, the Oregon State Police is investigating the officer-involved shooting, and any involved law enforcement members have been placed on paid administrative leave by their respective agencies. Any further information will be released by the Linn County District Attorney or the Oregon State Police.
