Portland cop fires at a car killing driver

“Portland police are investigating a case of shots fired that ended with an officer shooting a suspect.

A spokesperson with the Portland Police Bureau reports that officers responded to the area of southeast 122 and Division around 12:28 p.m. to reports of shots fired in the area.

Police were told a dark-colored car shot a handgun at another car that had three people in it as they traveled south on 122.

Police soon came across the car in question at a 7-11 parking lot in North Portland.

One passenger got out of the car and cooperated, but police said the driver of the car drove out of the lot and onto Fessenden.

It was during that time that police said an officer fired his weapon at the car before the car ended up crossing Fessenden and crashing into an apartment building.

After the car came to a stop, police called out the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) to assist with taking the suspect into custody.

Police said that after SERT made contact with the diver, paramedics determined the driver was already dead.

The investigation continues.”
