PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - The Portland Police Bureau has identified the man who was killed in a deadly shooting in southeast Portland.
The case began as a report of a suspicious person with a weapon near Southeast 103rd Drive and Stark Street at 1:40 p.m. Sunday.
A caller reported a man carrying a knife in the street.
Detectives said officers approached the suspect and, a short time later, shots were fired. Police said both less-lethal and lethal rounds were fired by the officers.
Medical assistance was provided to the suspect, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was identified Monday night as 51-year-old Koben S. Henriksen. Police said his family has been notified of his death.
Earlier Monday, the bureau reported that Officer Justin Raphael, a 7-year veteran of PPB, used lethal force. Officer Daniel Leonard, who has been with PPB for 11 years, used less-lethal force.
The less-lethal force was described by police as a “tool that launches foam-tipped projectiles designed to impact a subject from a distance.”
No further information has been released about this investigation.
"Portland Police Officers responded to a dynamic situation involving an armed subject," said Chief Danielle Outlaw on Sunday night. "This is still early in the investigation and we will work within the process to release as much information as we can without compromising any of the investigation."
