TIGARD, Ore. - The Washington County Major Crimes team is investigating an officer-involved shooting that left an 18-year-old dead.
The incident happened around 3 a.m. Saturday at a house on Southwest 80th and Birch in Washington County, near Tigard.
According to police, Lukus Glenn, a former Tigard High School football player who graduated last spring, was armed with a knife.
Sgt. David Thompson said four deputies who responded fired nonlethal beanbag rounds at Glenn but he still refused to disarm, so they shot him. He died at the scene.
Thompson said Saturday he did not know the specifics of the complaint and did not name the four deputies involved pending a decision of whether to take the case to a grand jury.
He said the officers believed their lives were in danger.
