2 Officers Shot In Portland

PORTLAND, 0re. - The Portland Police have issued a press release regarding the shooting of two officers Sunday in Southeast Portland.

According to police, Portland Police officers responded to a residence in the 3300 block of Southeast 10th Avenue at about 9:15 a.m. on the report of a distraught, suicidal 61-year-old man.

Central Precinct officers arrived in the area and received additional information that the man might have guns stored in the garage, but there was no information that he was threatening to use them. The information officers received was that the man was threatening to hurt himself by taking pills.

Officers attempted to call the man, but he did not answer. Then, the officers walked up to the home to talk to the man. At approximately 9:22 a.m., the suspect shot the officers from inside the home and one of the officers, a nine-year-veteran, received shrapnel to his ballistic vest and suffered minor injuries.

The officers retreated from the door and immediately began requesting additional officers to respond. The Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and Hostage Negotiators were also requested to respond.

One of the responding officers arrived and was making an approach on foot toward the home to assist with surrounding the house when the suspect fired at him, at approximately 9:34 a.m. A 13-year-veteran police officer was struck in the lower abdomen. Additional officers immediately responded to assist the downed officer. Officers then returned fire toward the gunman while other officers rescued the downed officer and get him to a safe location. The officer was transported by ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Hospital where he underwent surgery.

At this point, the officer is out of surgery and in recovery. He is listed in critical condition.

SERT and Hostage Negotiators arrived and immediately began developing a plan to secure the area and to make contact with the man. Negotiators talked to him on the phone and convinced him to peacefully surrender to police. At approximately 10:34 a.m., the suspect exited the home and surrendered to officers.

Detectives have now taken over the investigation and will remain in the neighborhood for several hours as they process the crime scene and conduct an investigation into the shooting.

No officer names will be released for at least 24 hours.
