The Regional Major Crimes Team is investigating a fatal officer involved shooting.
It happened Thursday at 1:40 p.m. when Detectives from the Safe Streets Task Force, conducting an investigation involving narcotics trafficking involving a gang member, attempted a traffic stop of their suspect in the 2500 block of NE 78th Street.
Vancouver Police say the suspect was uncooperative and was armed with a handgun. Detectives engaged the suspect, which resulted in two Vancouver detectives shooting the suspect, who did not survive. No officers were injured.
The Regional Major Crimes Team, led by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Camas Police Department, will be conducting the officer involved shooting investigation.
Any witnesses, who have not been contacted by detectives, are asked to call the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line, (360) 397-2120, and provide contact information.
