PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A trial is expected to start next week for a man shot by a deputy.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/1TdDpsR) 54-year-old Greg Howard Moore is charged with menacing in the April 7 shooting at his home.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray says Deputy Wes Johnson fired at least one shot at Moore.

Laurie Dennis is Moore’s sister, and says her brother was shot while holding an object outside of the window.

Dennis says investigators found two hooks by the window.

Moore’s attorney could not be reached for comment Thursday.

Johnson was placed on administrative leave after shooting Moore and has since returned to work.

Moore served 30 days in jail for violating parole on previous convictions of methamphetamine possession and attempting to assault a public safety officer.
