GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A group of people gathered in Gresham Sunday to remember a man who was killed in a police shooting. 

Sunday would have been Bodhi Phelps' 23rd birthday. His friends and family gathered in Gresham to honor him and to protest the police shooting that killed him.

Police say Phelps kidnapped a woman and was assaulting her in May. They say when they approached Phelps, he pulled out two knives and acted aggressive. Police eventually shot him.

At the time, Phelps had three warrants out for his arrest.

A grand jury found the two Gresham police officers justified in the shooting
