BREAKING: Review Board Recommends Firing Officer in Aaron Campbell Shooting (Updated)

Portland Police Officer Ronald Frashour has been ordered on leave after a review board recommended firing him for the Jan. 29 fatal shooting of Aaron Campbell, WW has learned from three sources in the police bureau.

Frashour was put on leave late last week after the bureau's Use of Force Review Board recommended that Chief Mike Reese fire Frashour, but Reese has not yet made a final decision, the sources say.

Lt. Kelli Sheffer, a bureau spokeswoman, and Officer Daryl Turner, president of the police union, both declined comment.

"My position is not to comment on it at this time, because it's still in the process," Turner says.

The review board also recommended that:

1. Officer Ryan Lewton, who fired six beanbag rounds at Campbell, receive 80 hours of unpaid leave;

2. Sgt. Liani Reyna, who was in charge of the scene until command staff arrived, receive 40 hours of unpaid leave;

3. Sgt. John Birkinbine receive 20 hours of unpaid leave.

Update at 9:45 am: Sheffer, the police bureau spokeswoman, has confirmed Frashour is on paid administrative leave.
