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
the transcripts are not yet complete but should be available on the DA's website by the end of the day Thursday.
