DA Releases Grand Jury Transcripts in Arboretum Shooting

Jackie Dale Collins

After gaining permission from Multnomah County Circuit Court Presiding Judge Jean Maurer, the District Attorney's office today released the grand jury transcripts on the March 22 fatal shooting of Jackie Collins.

A grand jury last week declined to indict Officer Jason Walters in the shooting. The transcripts are now available on the DA's website.

It's the second time that city officials and the DA's office have requested grand jury transcripts be released in a police fatal shooting. In February, a judge ordered the release of transcripts in the shooting of Aaron Campbell.

Walters — who shot Collins when police say he emerged from a bathroom armed with a razor knife — has officially been returned to duty at Central Precinct, says Sgt. Scott Westerman, head of the police union.
