Isaac L. Seavey Death – The Portland Police Bureau has identified the man who died in an officer-involved shooting this week in northeast Portland. Police responded just after 10 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a theft in progress on Northeast Marx, near Northeast 92nd Drive. Detectives said they later learned that someone who works in the area reported “theft of power” from a business.
After arriving at the scene, police said they learned a possible suspect might be inside of one of the several RVs parked on the road. Officers said they found the man and confronted him.
Then, at some point, police said the encounter resulted in one officer shooting the man identified Friday as 27-year-old Isaac L. Seavey, who was then declared dead at the scene.
At 5 p.m., several hours after PPB officials spoke with reporters, police announced that they found a handgun near Seavey’s body. Per standard practice, all involved officers have been placed on administrative leave and investigation into the shooting is underway.
