Statement by Mayor Ted Wheeler on Officer Involved Shooting

Portland, OR – Mayor Ted Wheeler released the following statement on Saturday’s officer involved shooting.

“Last night officers responded to multiple calls for service regarding a suspect that ultimately ended in an officer involved shooting. The loss of a life is always tragic. My priority is to discover the facts and circumstances regarding this incident. Already, there are those who want to immediately define what happened. It would be highly irresponsible for me to participate in speculation at this time. I urge us all to allow investigators to do their work, to uncover the facts, and to report on their findings.”
