Officer shoots suspect who
allegedly tried to run him over in van
[Portland, OR]

PoliceOne Staff Report
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- An officer who shot and killed a suspect driving at him with a van acted in self defense, KPTV News reported.

After a foot chase down Broadway in Northeast Portland yesterday, the suspect got into a van and attempted to drive away.

The suspect allegedly tried to run over the officer, so he shot the suspect once, killing him, police said.

An eyewitness told the television news station that he wasn't sure if the driver was actually trying to hit the officer with the van.

Police want to question a man that may have information in the case and are encouraging anyone with information to come forward.
