06/29/2015 Update to Fatal Shooting Investigation on Northeast 122nd Avenue

Portland Police Bureau Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate a fatal shooting that occurred on Sunday night involving two Portland Police officers.

On Sunday June 28, 2015, at 11:35 p.m., Officer Dominic Lovato, an eight-year-veteran of the Bureau, and Officer Michael Currier, a seven-year-veteran of the Bureau, were working a partner car assigned to East Precinct night shift.

The officers contacted three individuals standing at the trunk of a car on the West side of WinCo Foods, located at 1950 Northeast 122nd Avenue.

One of these individuals was later identified as 29-year-old Alan Lee Bellew.

Officers were speaking with the group for several minutes and without provocation, Bellew retrieved a handgun from the vehicle and pointed it in the direction of the officers and the two individuals associated with the vehicle.

Both officers fired their handguns at Bellew and he fell into the passenger seat.

At 11:46 p.m., officers broadcast "shots fired" at their location and multiple cover units responded to the scene (information released earlier by the Bureau that the shooting happened almost immediately after initial contact was erroneous and the Bureau regrets the error).

At 11:48 p.m., medical personnel were requested to respond to the scene.

As soon as the first cover officers arrived, officers developed a plan to safely approach Bellew and render immediate medical aid as officers awaited medical personnel to arrive at the scene.

Medical personnel arrived at 11:52 p.m., and determined that Bellew was deceased.

Bellew's two associates, an adult female and an adult male, were detained by officers and interviewed by Homicide detectives.*-..

The World Naked Bike Ride is set to roll through the streets of Portland on Saturday June 27, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. Event organizers estimated the number of participants last year to be nearly 10,000 people.

The Portland Police Bureau will have extra officers on hand to ensure everyone is safe and to provide assistance at intersections.

Portland City Code 14A.40.030 (Indecent Exposure) states the following:

It is unlawful for any person to expose his or her genitalia while in a public place or place visible from a public place, if the public place is open or available to persons of the opposite sex.

The Portland Police Bureau recommends at a bare minimum, all riders at least wear a helmet and shoes to avoid any potential injuries.*-..
