The family of a man shot and killed during an encounter with a Crook County Sheriff’s deputy last year has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

Nick Rodin was shot by Crook County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Hatcher after an encounter on a gravel road in Juniper Canyon. The incident took place February 4, 2022, on SE Maphet Road about 10 miles south of Prineville.

Rodin was shot twice after defying multiple orders to get on the ground and after reaching toward his waistband. Police bodycam footage of the encounter was released.

No knife or gun was found at the scene.
