News Release
Update Regarding November 19 Shooting Incident - 11/23/22

As was previously released, at 12:24 a.m. on November 19, East Precinct officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in the 5000 Block of Southeast Powell Boulevard. A suspect vehicle description was broadcast to responding officers. A short time later, an officer spotted a vehicle similar in description to the suspect vehicle. The driver of the suspect vehicle was driving in a reckless manner. The vehicle stopped in a parking lot in the 2900 Block of Southeast Steele Street, where officers attempted to contact the occupants. At 12:41 a.m., the officer involved shooting occurred, during which 30-year-old Immanueal Jaquez Clark-Johnson was struck and transported by ambulance for medical treatment.

Clark-Johnson has passed away due to his injuries. An autopsy performed by the Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Clark-Johnson Died from the gunshot wound. His family has been notified of his death.

As is standard practice, the Portland Police Bureau Homicide Unit is investigating the incident in conjunction with the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and East County Major Crimes Team, all of whom responded to the scene. After all available facts have been gathered, they will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office, at which point the District Attorney will make the decision on whether the facts of the case warrant its presentation to a grand jury.

As part of the use of force review process, the Bureau will conduct an internal review of the entire incident, including the initial response, resources requested, tactics used, and post shooting actions. The case will go before the Police Review Board (PRB), which is composed of community members, Bureau members, and representatives from the Independent Police Review Division.

The Portland Police Bureau directive outlining the procedures followed after an officer involved shooting may be found at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/656780 .

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. Information available about past officer-involved shootings can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/76940
