A judge this morning agreed to release the transcripts from the grand jury testimony in the police shooting death of Aaron Campbell.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schrunk and City Commissioner Dan Saltzman requested the records be released. It was will be the first time grand jury testimony in a Portland cop shooting will be made public.

Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Jean Maurer ordered the transcripts released this morning at a 9 a.m. hearing. No one showed up at the hearing to oppose the motion or filed any opposition statements with the court.

The six-member grand jury found Officer Ronald Frashour likely did not commit a crime when he shot the unarmed Campbell on Jan. 29. But the grand jury expressed deep concerns about police handling of incident.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Norm Frink tells WW the transcripts are not yet complete but should be available on the DA's website by the end of the day Thursday.
