HILLSBORO - One year ago today, law enforcement agencies descended on a home near Hagg Lake on reports of theft of a firearm. 

In the ensuing gunfight, two Washington County Sheriff’s Officers were shot; Cpl. Jeremy Braun and deputy Chris Iverson. While Iverson was able to resume duties shortly after the incident, Braun would face — and continues to face — a long path to recovery.

In a 22-minute video update released by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Braun, who grew up in Banks, answers a series of questions about his health, his recovery, how his colleagues and the community have responded to his injuries and recovery, and more.
