The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office has released the following information on the three deputies involved in Sunday’s shootout in the parking lot of a Port Orchard Walmart:

Andrew Paul Ejde

Andrew Paul Ejde, 48, was shot in his left shoulder and right arm. He is still being treated at Tacoma General Hospital and is listed in satisfactory condition. Ejde is expected to be released within 48 hours.

He has been with the Sheriff’s Office for 6 ½ years and previously worked as a deputy for the King County Sheriff’s Office and a manufacturing engineer with Boeing.

John Roy Stacy

John Roy Stacy, 50, was shot in the right shoulder and was discharged from the hospital Monday.

He has been with the Sheriff’s Office for nine years and retired from the U.S. Navy as chief hospital corpsman after 20 years of service.

Krista Rae McDonald, 38, is identified as the deputy who fired at the suspect after seeing that her two colleagues had been shot. She has been placed on administrative leave – which is standard practice – while the investigation unfolds.

Krista Rae McDonald

She has been with the Sheriff’s Office for 10 years and used to work for the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office and Western Washington University Police Department.

  1. Great job Krista for protecting the public…and as for the officers hurt, have a successful recovery!

    Way to go Krista! This is certainly shaking up to be a textbook case of a righteous shoot. I know, there are always going to be the cop haters out there who will condem the police for shooting, no matter what the situation, but this appears to be one case where they need to just accept the fact that officers have the right to protect themselves as well as the public.

    May God bless and keep you, Krista Rae McDonald!
    Thank you for your courage and ability to perform under the most difficult and trying circumstance.
    Believe me, the huge majority of us are very proud of you for your extraordinary service in our behalf.

  4. Yea awesome work you get to run the practice range for your fellow officers….if you cannot hit what you shooting at…you need to practice ….am sure the vests saved these officers lives…their shooting sure did not…I read many times about all these rounds expended and no one is hit…hmmmm practice practice practice…you should know already how well or how poor you shoot…and if you shoot poorly and you own a gun…you may want to practice

    Kudos to the lady Sheriff… give her a raise. Make her at least a Sargent. It is high time that Judges get serious with the bad guys. A $2500.00 bond gets this guy out on to the streets with his history. We know California is fille with left wing sympathetic judges but it almost cost three people their lives.

    It’s too bad you had to shoot another human being but it is the only option he left you with. Congrats on making a split second decision and making it right. You have made this world a far better and safer one to live in.

    Good shooting

  8. Good shooting? The perp hit 2 targets that were behind him while on the run.

    That’s good shooting.

  9. What happens when we find out Krista Rae shot that 13 year old too?

  10. HarleyGuy says:

    God Bless our Law Enforcement Officers.
    Three local heroes doing their job.
    Sadly, two are injured and one hits her mark.
    One more scumbag taken down. One less sexual predator to worry about.
    One unfortunate casualty. A 13 year old girl, who according to authorities had run away with the suspect.
    Bitter Sweet, no doubt.

    “We know California is fille with left wing sympathetic judges but it almost cost three people their lives.

    The perp was on bail from Utah. Nice try.

  12. Alaska47 says:

    Anthony Martinez was a coward that shot two officers by blindsiding them.His shooting wasn`t “good” like dejun states above.If he fired multiple rounds towards the direction of the officers,he was likely to hit them.He was a worthless coward and a weirdo.Kitsap County is very fortunate to have these three officers that put their lives on the line to protect others.

    dejene2, perhaps in your critique of the shooting you have failed to recognize that the bad guy is dead……the two officers are alive. Now, who won.

  14. curiousasacat says:

    Thank God none of the customers of Walmart or any other uninvolved citizen were hit. The 13 yr old girl does indeed make it bitter sweet

  15. Once this matter has been totally investigated by law enforcement, — Alot of questions will be answered ! I believe there is more to that 911 call than meets the eye.. and those officers were certainly not aware of the danger they had been dispatched to A tragic incident but thankfully, Our officers are alive and no innocent by standers we hurt !

    Thankfully Krista had good aim ! .. It was not her fault the girl darted into the line of fire ! .. The bullet was already fired !

  16. pazzo242 says:

    dejene2….there’s always one jerk in the crowd. This time it happens to be you.

  17. pazzo242 says:

    Les398… is obvious you have never been in a gun battle, thus never tried to shoot back after you’ve been hit and when bullets are fly past you. Let me enlighten you, if that ever happens (which I don’t wish on anyone) the pucker factor is extreme and all you can think of is “Ah s..t!!”. so to second guess these guys is way off base. Thank God Officer McDonald was available and ready to back up these officers and that should be the focus of your comments. But I see you would rather dis the officers who were wounded and trying to respond in extreme stress situation. What a moron.

  18. pazzo242 says:

    r358c……very well said. An unfortunate situation for everyone involved. Let us keep in mind that the one who put the girl in harm’s way was not the officers but the one who started shooting first…..period. He alone is responsible for her death, no matter whose bullet struck her.

  19. Traci909 says:

    Dejen – That 13-year-old ran into the middle of a gunfight. There is a reason that most people don’t do that.

    And Pazzo – I like where you were going, but you don’t go far enough. He started shooting first, which did ultimately result in her death, but let’s not forget that he first manipulated her, then brought her across multiple state lines for purposes that may not be confirmed but we all know. He was a scumbag from ‘go’ and while I bet he was telling her all along how much he loved her, how no one else in her life did, and that he would take care of her, he was always just using her and would have used her as a human shield at any time.
