Officer Involved Shooting - 07/11/19

On July 11, 2019 a BPD officer was involved in an officer involved shooting.  The shooting took place near SW West Slope/SW 83rd at approximately 11:35 a.m.  

At the above date and time BPD detectives were conducting an undercover mission to apprehend suspects involved in sex trafficking.  Preliminary investigations show, after taking one suspect into custody, a second suspect accelerated his vehicle towards an officer.  It was during this action, by the suspect, that an officer involved shooting occurred.  No officers were seriously injured.  

The suspect was able to drive away from the scene in a blue Infiniti.  The unoccupied suspect vehicle was located by officers at SW West Slope/SW Canyon Lane.  A K9 track was unsuccessful in locating the suspect.    

The officer involved in the shooting will be placed on critical incident leave, which is routine.  The suspects’ names and the name of the involved officer will be released at a later date due to the ongoing investigation.

Additional information regarding the circumstances that led up to the shooting will be released after the Washington County Major Crimes Team has concluded their investigation.
