OREGON CITY, Ore. – More details are now known about the officer involved shooting that left one dead in Oregon City on Saturday.

38-year-old Travis Anthony Moore was identified Monday as the man killed by Officers David Edwins and David Plummer during an altercation.

Sergeant Matthew Paschall told KXL that the officers were attempting to arrest Moore for failing to appear in municipal court for an earlier charge of Harassment. But, he said that Moore became violent and fought back, even fighting through a taser.

After the shot was fired during the scuffle, police tried to revive Moore, but he was declared dead at the scene.

The officers are both on paid administrative leave as the Clackamas County Interagency Major Crimes Team investigates the situation.
