An armed robbery near a gentleman’s club on S.E. Powell Boulevard near 50th Avenue just after midnight, early Wednesday morning, November 19th, led to a officer-involved shooting and the death of a suspect in the Reed neighborhood.

At 12:24 a.m. on that morning, East Precinct officers sere sent to investigate the report of an armed robbery behind that establishment. The suspect’s vehicle description was broadcast to officers responding to the incident. A short time later, an officer spotted a vehicle similar in description to the suspect vehicle being driven in a reckless manner through Inner Southeast Portland neighborhoods.
