Statement by Mayor Ted Wheeler on Officer Involved Shooting

“In the early hours of Sunday morning an officer-involved shooting led to the death of a man named Patrick Kimmons. My thoughts are with his family and those affected by Sunday’s events, including the officers involved, witnesses, and our community partners who work every day to reduce conflict and violence in Portland. In the coming days and weeks, many will rightly have questions about what happened. These questions are important; the answers are important. There are now multiple active investigations, and I am committed to ensuring accurate information is disclosed as quickly and completely as possible.”
