Below are a list of all persons shot and killed, shot and wounded, shot at and not killed, and killed by a conducted electrical weapon (CEW), also known as a Taser, in Oregon, in 2020, by state certified law enforcement.
No officers received discipline for any of these incidents from their employers. No county district attorneys filed charges. No officer was disciplined for any of these incidents by the state training and certification agency. As of February 5, 2021 we know of no lawsuits filed by a private attorney on behalf of any of these persons or their survivors.
The numbers for 2020 match prior recent years – they are average. Nine persons are of unknown race because no mention of race was made by the media, the family on social media, or by police; we assume these as white but list as unknown. Two people suicided while police guns were drawn on them. One, William Bluestone, after shooting himself was shot by police. We suspect more alcohol, more drugs, and more domestic violence would be listed in the clinical profiles with more research. Many – most – of the shootings involved a gun being pointed at or displayed toward police.
This list does not include shootings in crowd control situations, which could increase this list by a factor of ten or more. Though the Portland Police Bureau has received community criticism for police shootings in prior years, in 2020 there were just two shootings, both without wounding. No person of color has been shot and killed by Portland police since January 2019, when Andre Gladen, a Black and sight-disabled man with schizophrenia in a mental health crisis was shot and killed by PPB officer Consider Vosu.
