Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Fairview that left one man dead Friday night.

Police said officers responded to a disturbance call at 11:47 p.m. at the Woodcreek Apartments at Northeast 203rd Avenue and Halsey.

Officers arrived to find a 37-year-old man with a large knife, according to Police Chief Ken Johnson. The man, who has not been identified by police, attacked one officer, who opened fire.

The man died at the scene, Johnson said.

“This is the city of Fairview’s first officer involved shooting in the history of the agency, so it’s very shocking,” said Fairview Police Spokesman Bernie Meyer. “Unfortunately, that’s the type of environment we’re beginning to live in now.”

The man’s mother spoke with KATU News Saturday. Sandra Kelley says her son’s name is Larry and police lied about what happened Friday night.

Kelley says she was the one who called police because her son was drunk.

She says Larry did hold up a knife when police arrived, but he did not attack the officers.

Kelley says both she and police told him to put the knife down and the next thing she knew, officers were shooting.

“My son did not make one move,” Kelley said. “They didn’t even give him time to think before they shot him and he hadn’t even moved a muscle.”

“I started screaming, I said ‘oh my god you didn’t need to shoot him, you shot him,'” said Kelley. “It was a very bad shock, very bad shock, because I didn’t think that was going to happen.”

Kelley said officers shot Larry 3 times and pushed her to the ground, asking if she had a weapon. She’s upset police did not use non-lethal force to subdue her son.

The officers involved in the shooting are now on administrative leave, police said.
