Portland Police Names Officers Involved In Sunday Shooting

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Portland police have released the names of two officers who shot a man who allegedly stole a truck and drove at high speeds through the metro area and briefly into Washington before he was shot in Portland.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Officers Ivan Alvarez and Jonah Gellman are on standard paid leave during an investigation.

Bureau spokesman Lt. Greg Pashley says officers early Sunday responded to a stolen pickup report and investigators began tracking Andreas Boinay using a police airplane.

The man was eventually surrounded by officers in Portland and police reported shots fired.

Police say Boinay was treated for a gunshot wound and booked into jail.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer to comment.
