Two individuals managed to elude law enforcement officers from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday night after fleeing from a vehicle believed to be connected to a tragic murder-suicide incident that occurred earlier in the week, Your Content has learned.

According to the sheriff’s office, it was discovered that a vehicle had dropped off James Jordan, aged 45, at Erica Jordan’s residence in the Minnehaha area just moments before the shooting took place.

At approximately 11:42 p.m., a deputy noticed a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle at the intersection of Northeast 102nd Avenue and 59th Street.

Upon attempting to initiate a stop, the vehicle proceeded westward along Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard, as outlined in an official press release from the sheriff’s office.

After a short pursuit, the vehicle eventually came to a halt near Northeast 78th Avenue and Fourth Plain Boulevard.

At this point, two occupants swiftly exited the vehicle and evaded capture.

Despite an extensive search of the surrounding area conducted by law enforcement officers and a police K-9 unit, the individuals were not located, as stated by the sheriff’s office.

Authorities have verified that the apprehended vehicle is indeed the one associated with the shooting and have therefore seized it as evidence, as indicated in the news release.

The investigation into this tragic event is ongoing, with the sheriff’s office’s Major Crimes Unit leading the efforts.

Investigators have revealed that an active protection order had been in place to prevent James Jordan from approaching Erica Jordan’s residence within a radius of 1,000 feet.

Court records indicate numerous violations of this protection order, with his most recent arrest for violation occurring on April 4.

On Monday at approximately 10:53 p.m., two young girls contacted emergency services, reporting that their stepfather had just shot their mother and subsequently turned the gun on himself.

First responders swiftly arrived at the residence situated in the vicinity of Northeast 42nd Avenue and 56th Street. Inside the house, they discovered James Jordan, who had suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Erica Jordan, on the other hand, had sustained a gunshot wound and was transported to a nearby hospital via ambulance.

Tragically, she succumbed to her injuries shortly afterward, according to information provided by the sheriff’s office.

For the safety and well-being of the children involved, the sheriff’s office has chosen not to release their identities and has ensured that they are under the care of their extended family, according to The Columbian.
