The suspect in a Washougal shooting made his first appearance in Clark County Superior Court Monday morning on charges of first degree assault.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Trevor Dean Hauzenberger, 23, of Vancouver, admitted to the shooting but stated that it was done in self-defense.

On March 31 at approximately 9:45 p.m., Washougal Police Department officers responded to a report of shots fired and a victim down at 27th and F streets in Washougal.

According to a probably cause affidavit, on arrival officers found 23-year-old Tyler G. Davis lying unconscious at the intersection of 27th and “F” street, suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Camas-Washougal Fire Department personnel transported the Davis to the hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Officers arrested Trevor D. Hauzenberger at the scene. He was booked into the Clark County jail on charges of first degree assault with a firearm. The firearm, bullet casing and bullet projectile were recovered from the scene.

Court documents state that the incident stemmed from a verbal altercation began between Trevor Hauzenberger and Haley Hauzenberger. Davis then became involved in the argument. After a bystander attempted to stop the altercation, Trevor Hauzenberger retrieved a 9 mm handgun from his vehicle.

“Trevor displayed the firearm and told Tyler something to the effect of, ‘I have a gun…Leave me along,” the affidavit stated. “Tyler apparently approached Trevor in an aggressive manner and said that he was going to kill Trevor. Trevor shot Tyler in the chest one time.”

Haley Hauzenberger confirmed to officers that Davis had threatened to kill Trevor Hauzenberger.

According to court documents, WPD Sgt. Zane Freschette was told by PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center staff that Davis’ injuries included laceration of the left renal vein and right renal artery, complete transection of the right hepatic artery, a large blood clot in his back, laceration of the right psoas muscle and a vertebrae fracture.

On Monday, Davis was listed in satisfactory condition at PeaceHealth.
