Portland (KGW) – Police released a video Thursday of a rapid-fire shootout that occurred on Interstate 84.
Oregon State Police released dramatic dashboard camera footage of an officer-involved shooting on August 29 that killed 34-year-old John Van Allen II.
Allen, a military veteran, was taking his three children on a road trip when he was pulled over by state police.
…Allen was found several miles down the road, killed by a single bullet to the chest. Zistel sustained a mild gunshot wound. The children were unharmed.
Just goes to show that just because you score a good hit, doesn’t mean the aggressor will cease their attack.
In this video, the assailant looked uninjured and scrambled back into his car and drove away, only to expire a few miles down the road after exsanguinating (that’s “bleeding to death” for low-information voters).
Frankly, the early stages of this video gave me the chills, personally, as they brought back memories of a similar encounter I had in Montgomery, AL that thankfully had a happier ending for all involved.
