Quanice Derrick Hayes was suspected of robbing a man near a Northeast Portland motel, police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said.
Hayes reportedly robbed a man sitting in his car outside the Portland Value Inn, 1707 N.E. 82nd Ave., on Thursday morning, Simpson said. A motel employee said Hayes took the man's Oregon food benefits card.
Shortly after, police responded to a reported car prowl at the Banfield Pet Hospital, Simpson said. They encountered Hayes, who fled, Simpson said.
They encountered him a third time and Officer Andrew Hearst shot and killed Hayes, Simpson said. No one else was injured.
The shooting occurred about two hours after the initial robbery report in the 8300 of Northeast Hancock Street, Simpson said.
Simpson did not give any details about the encounter leading up to the shooting.
Hearst has worked on the Portland police force for seven years, Simpson said. He was placed on administrative leave, as is standard procedure, Simpson said.
Police are investigating the shooting, Simpson said. When the investigation is complete the case will go to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and presented to a grand jury, which is a standard procedure, Simpson said. The case will also be presented to the Police Review Board.
Another man with a replica gun was shot by police officers Thursday night. He is expected to survive.
