Portland cop in training shoots 17-year old (7/17)

“Sources said during the traffic stop the 17-year-old boy refused to cooperate with the demands of the officers. Officials said the teen kept reaching toward his waistband, which officers may have perceived as a threat.

At some point, Simpson said, an officer at the scene fired a non-lethal beanbag round and a second officer fired his service weapon. According to our sources, that second officer was the aforementioned trainee.

The 17-year-old suffered “some injuries,” according to Simpson. However, sources tell KOIN that police are not sure if the boy’s injuries were caused by the trainee’s firearm, if the boy accidentally caused the firearm he was holding to discharge, or if the boy shot himself.”
