Police have identified the wanted 38-year-old man who was shot and killed by an officer at his Oregon City apartment.

Two officers attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Travis Anthony Moore at 1:46 p.m. Saturday on the 200 block of South 2nd Street.

The warrant was issued out of Oregon City Municipal Court for failure to appear on the charge of harassment.

Investigators said Moore immediately became violent with the officers and resisted arrest. A Taser was used on him, but police said it did not stop his resistance.

Moore was eventually shot by one of the officers.

The officers began first aid on Moore, and paramedics arrived at the scene, but Moore was pronounced dead.

"There are several other factors and details surrounding the officers' use of force during this violent altercation, but those details are not being released until the investigation has been completed," according to an Oregon City Police Department statement.

Investigators said Moore was known to suffer from mental health issues. His warrant stemmed from an altercation with a neighbor. Police said Moore attacked his neighbor and made derogatory references about his sexual orientation.

Police said Moore was peaceful with officers during his initial arrest in January. 

The officers involved in Saturday's shooting were identified Monday as David Plummer, a 17-year police veteran who has been with the Oregon City Police Department for about five years, and David Edwins, an 11-year veteran with the Oregon City Police Department.  

Both officers are on paid administrative leave pending the completion of the investigation, which is standard procedure for an officer-involved shooting.

Police said both officers have received training in crisis intervention geared toward interacting with people who have mental health issues.

The Clackamas County Interagency Major Crimes Team is continuing to investigate the shooting.
