On July 24, 2022, at approximately 12:06 AM, officers from the East Precinct responded to the area of SE 148th Ave and SE Clinton St on a report of a male and female physically fighting.
While attempting to arrest the male suspect, a shot was fired by the suspect, resulting in an officer returning fire. The suspect, later identified as 19-year-old Johnathan Worth was declared deceased at the scene. The Medical Examiner completed an autopsy on the deceased suspect and determined that Worth died from a gunshot wound.
The officer involved in this shooting is identified as Officer Mina Cavalli-Singer, a nearly 5-year veteran of the Portland Police Bureau.
On December 13, 2022, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that upon the conclusion of the presentation of evidence, a grand jury has returned a not true bill and found the use of force in this incident was not criminal under Oregon law.
As part of the use of force review process, the Bureau conducts an internal review of the entire incident and the case will go before the Police Review Board (PRB), which is composed of community members, Bureau members and representatives from the Independent Police Review Division.
The Portland Police Bureau's directive outlining the procedures followed after an officer-involved shooting may be found in Directive 1010.10.
