###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

The Portland Police Bureau, East County Major Crimes Team, Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and City of Portland's Independent Police Review continue to investigate the officer-involved shooting that occurred on Sunday, January 6, 2019, at a residence in the 9600 block of Southeast Market Street.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office performed an autopsy on the deceased this morning. The deceased's name and cause of death will be provided once his next of kin are notified.

This is an active and ongoing investigation. The Portland Police Bureau's directive outlining the procedures followed after an officer involved shooting may be found at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/656780

The involved Portland Police Bureau Officer has been identified as Officer Consider Vosu, a one year and eleven month veteran of the Police Bureau. The officer has been scheduled for an administrative interview with Portland Police Bureau Internal Affairs Division investigators within 48 hours of the shooting. Per Bureau policy and in accordance with case law, the information gathered during the Internal Affairs interview will not be disclosed to Homicide Detail Detectives or the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office. Information regarding the Internal Affairs Interview may be provided after the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office's investigation and court proceedings have concluded.

Investigators have learned that the suspect, a 36-year-old man, arrived at a residence in the 9600 block of Southeast Market Street on Sunday afternoon. A resident at the location called 911 and reported that a subject was outside of the caller's home and would not leave the property even after the resident directed the subject to leave.

An officer arrived at the location and located the suspect, who entered the residence reportedly without permission. The officer, the resident and the suspect were inside the residence when the shooting occurred. Based on witness statements and physical evidence, detectives believe the officer deployed his Taser. Detectives believe the Taser was not effective and the officer then fired his duty firearm, striking the suspect.

Immediately after the suspect was injured, the officer requested emergency medical responders to the location. Responding cover officers provided the suspect with emergency medical first aid until medical personnel arrived on scene and transported him to a Portland hospital by ambulance, where he was pronounced deceased.

During the investigation, a knife was located inside the home and seized as evidence. (A photograph of the knife is provided with this press release.)

Following the Multnomah County District Attorney's investigation and court proceedings, additional information will be released as appropriate.

As part of the use of force review process, the Bureau will conduct an internal review of the entire incident and the case will go before the Police Review Board (PRB), which is comprised of community members, Bureau members and representatives from the Independent Police Review.

Once the entire investigation and legal process is complete, the investigative files and any grand jury transcripts will be posted on the Bureau's Open Data page and can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/52175

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

The Portland Police Bureau Detective Division's Homicide Detail, Training and Professional Standards Divisions, as well as the East County Major Crimes Team, City of Portland's Independent Police Review, Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, and the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office continue to investigate this afternoon's incident that resulted in an officer-involved shooting.

Preliminary information indicates that this incident started at 2:03 p.m., on Sunday, January 6, 2019, when East Precinct officers responded to the report that a person arrived at a residence in the 9600 block of Southeast Market Street and refused to leave the property.

At some point after the officer arrived at the residence, the officer contacted the suspect. Shortly after contacting the suspect, the officer broadcast that he had fired his duty firearm. The officer requested emergency medical personnel respond to the scene. Officers provided emergency medical first aid prior to emergency medical personnel arriving. When emergency medical personnel arrived, they continued to provide the suspect emergency medical aid and transported him by ambulance to a Portland hospital for treatment. Once at the hospital medical personnel determined the suspect was deceased.

The identity of the deceased suspect, an adult male, will be provided after a member with the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office has completed an autopsy investigation and next of kin notified.

"As with all officer-involved shootings, we are committed to a full investigation," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "A loss of life impacts us all and I know we all immediately search for answers. I ask for patience as we continue our investigative process and then release information as soon as it is appropriate."

The involved Bureau member's name will be released per Bureau policy. The involved officer will remain on paid administrative leave until the completion of the Bureau and Multnomah County District Attorney Office's investigation.

The Bureau may release additional information as appropriate. The involved officer is scheduled to be interviewed by Portland Police Bureau Internal Affairs Division Investigators within 48 hours.

As part of the use of force review process, the Bureau will conduct an internal review of the entire incident and the case will go before the Police Review Board (PRB), which is comprised of community members, Bureau members and representatives from the Independent Police Review Division.
