The investigation led by the interagency Clackamas County Major Crimes Team of an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper-involved shooting late Sunday afternoon is continuing. Investigators are asking for contact from witnesses who saw an associated vehicle or a man running across Interstate 205 to the area where the shooting occurred in the 14000 block of SE 82nd Drive south of SE Lawnfield Road.
 
On May 30, 2010 at approximately 5:45 p.m. a report was forwarded to OSP Northern Command Center dispatch of a reckless driver eastbound on Highway 224 from the Milwaukie area. The vehicle, a dark gray Ford Ranger pickup with a metal rear bed rack was seen stopping on the southbound on ramp from Highway 224 toward southbound Interstate 205. The driver fled on foot across Interstate 205 to the east side of the freeway.
 
An OSP trooper driving on SE 82nd Drive saw a man who matched the description walking on the east side of the road. The trooper attempted contact with the man who was in possession of a knife. During the contact the trooper shot the man, injuring him.
 
The man was transported by AMR ambulance to Oregon Health Sciences University where he is currently being treated.
 
Investigators are seeking any witnesses who saw the Ford Ranger pickup driving on Sunday or saw a man running across Interstate 205 near the 82nd Drive overpass. Anyone with information regarding these events or who witnessed the trooper-involved shooting is asked to call OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.
 
The Oregon license plates displayed on the gray Ford Ranger pickup do not come back registered to that vehicle.
 
No names or additional information to be released at this time.
