August 20, 2012 15:25The Portland Police Bureau is releasing video from the 7-Eleven that was taken on July 28, 2012, and shows part of the incident regarding the officer-involved shooting of Billy W. Simms. The video features four angles, with three showing parts of the incident. No angle shows the incident fully or in its entirety.
Last week the Multnomah County District Attorney released the Grand Jury Transcripts involving the shooting. The Portland Police Bureau anticipates sharing the police reports publicly as soon as they are prepared for release.
As is the case in all officer-involved shootings, an extensive internal review process is ongoing. At the conclusion of the internal review, the case will be presented to the Portland Police Bureau's Use of Force Review Board.
