Portland police have released the names of the people involved in Saturday's deadly officer-involved shooting.
Police said 28-year-old Billy Wayne Simms was shot by Officer Justin Clary, who is a 10-year veteran of the police bureau.
Detectives spent all evening investigating a case of road rage that ended when they said Clary fatally shot Simms in north Portland.
Lt. Robert King, a spokesman with the Portland Police Bureau, reports that officers responded to the area of Southeast 122nd and Division at 12:28 p.m. to reports of shots fired in the area.
Police said Simms was the driver of a dark-colored car who shot a handgun at another car that had three innocent people in it as they traveled south on 122nd.
Police soon came across the car with Simms inside at a 7-11 parking lot in north Portland.
Investigators said officers confronted two men who had been in the car as they left the store.
"One suspect complied and was taken into custody, and one man got in the car, started it and drove out of the lot. In the course of the encounter, one officer fired his weapon," said King in a news release.
The car ended up crossing Fessenden and crashing into an unoccupied unit in an apartment building.
"It felt like we had an earthquake right after that," said Meka Curry, who was in the apartment next to the one that was hit.
After the car came to a stop, police called out the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) to assist with taking the suspect into custody.
Police said that after SERT made contact with Simms, paramedics determined he was already dead.
A spokesman said it was too early to tell if the suspect fired any shots at the officers or if he returned fire. Neighbors told FOX 12 that they heard multiple gunshots.
"I heard like six shots like three, ‘Boom, boom, boom,' and then like, ‘Boom, boom, boom,'" said Mike Conway, who lives nearby.
The investigation continues.
