Grand Jury Finds No Criminal Liability in Fatal Police Shooting of Keaton Otis

Keaton Otis

A Multnomah County grand jury has found no criminal liability in the Portland police's fatal shooting of Keaton Dupree Otis. The May 12 shooting death of the 25-year-old Otis during a traffic stop in the Lloyd District was the third fatal shooting by Portland police this year

There have been no criminal indictments in any of those shootings, which has been the case involving every grand jury in recent memory that's looked at a fatal police shooting in Multnomah County. One recent difference has been the release of grand jury transcripts in the two fatal shootings this year.

A press release last night from the county district attorney's office, which said 44 witnesses testified to the grand jury in the latest shooting, said a motion to disclose the transcripts of grand jury testimony in the Otis case will come before the court on June 3 June 1.
