Independent Report Released Into Tigard Officer Involved Shooting

(Tigard, OR) -- An independent report into the Tigard Police officer involved shooting that killed 26-year-old Jacob Macduff in 2021 is critical of police, the Washington County investigation, and the Attorney General's office. Macduff was in a mental health crisis, armed with a knife inside of his locked pickup. A Tigard officer broke the truck's window and when it appeared Macduff was reaching for something, the officer fired killing Macduff. The report from the OIR Group found a chaotic tactical response. It says, the county's plan for investigating police shootings is outdated. And, transcripts from the grand jury that didn't indict the officer weren't released. Tigard Police Chief Kathy McAlpine says they've made several changes to the department since the shooting and they're open to many of the recommendations from the report.
