  • Suspect killed in West Valley City Police officer-involved shooting identified

A person is dead in an officer-involved shooting Saturday evening in Southeast Portland, the police bureau said.

Baron, 51, was shot about 6:30 p.m.by officers responding to a report of a man threatening to harm himself on North Main Street, officials said. During the pursuit, police say the suspect entered the garage of a home located on Dana Shelby Court, encountered the homeowners and fled again.

The news release said that police believed they had probable cause to arrest the man after they found evidence of an assault at the scene.

Officer Isidro Urias Mora gave Acosta commands to get out of the vehicle. The male suspect finally exited his vehicle but refused to show his hands, according to police. He finally left the auto but didn't show his hands.




Once in the wooded area, police say a Taser was used to apprehend the suspect.

Investigators say Mora believed he was about to be run over and fired shots, striking the vehicle.

No officers were hurt. The SAPD shooting team is handling the investigation which will be forwarded to the Bexar County District Attorney's office upon completion. The officers have been placed on administrative assignment and their names will be released in the coming days.
