Portland police shot a member of the public while conducting a traffic stop in the Roseway neighborhood Friday night.
According to a Portland Police Bureau (PPB) press release, two officers were on patrol and pulled over a driver for “multiple violations” at Northeast 78th Avenue and Northeast Mason Street around 9 pm. During the traffic stop, one or both officers shot the driver. The injured person was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, according to the police.
The Portland Police Homicide Unit is investigating the shooting.
“There is a lot to be learned about what took place,” PPB Acting Chief Mike Frome said in a press release. Frome is filling in for PPB Chief Chuck Lovell while he is out of the state.
This is the second police shooting in 2022. Two police officers shot and killed a person in February while responding to calls of someone shooting a gun in the Southwest Hills. Portland police shot eight people in 2021, killing four.
