Update: Man killed by Portland cop Justin Clary identified as Billy Simms, 28

“Police have identified the man killed by a Portland police officer Saturday afternoon as 28-year-old Billy Wayne Simms.

Police said an officer opened fire during a high risk stop in the parking lot of a 7-11 and Shell gas station on North Columbia Way and North Fessenden.

Lt. Robert King, spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau, said Simms was wanted for an attempted shooting earlier in the day near Southeast Stark and 122nd. When officers spotted the car Simms had been driving, they tried to stop him and another suspect as they were leaving 7-11.

King said one of the men cooperated but Simms didn’t comply, instead officers say he drove away and was shot by Portland police officer Justin Clary, a 10-year veteran.
After Clary fired, Simms crashed the car into an apartment building across the street. Simms was pronounced dead at the scene.”
