Autopsy finds teen shot by police was intoxicated

TIGARD, Ore. - A Tigard teenager who was shot to death by Washington County sheriff's deputies had been drinking heavily that day, according to the Medical Examiner's report.

The report showed 18-year-old Lukus Glenn's blood alcohol level was at .18, which is two times the legal limit for someone who is driving. The tests showed he did not have any drugs in his system.

Glenn was killed Sept. 16 outside his home. According to police, he was acting in an irrational manner and was also armed with a knife. Police opened fire on him after first using non-lethal beanbag rounds to try to subdue him.

Since the shooting, concern has grown in the community about whether the deputies who fired on Glenn were right in doing so. The case may head to a grand jury.
