Evidence of Officer Involved Shooting Near Athena to be Presented to Grand Jury

As the investigation into Monday's deadly officer involved shooting near Athena continues, Umatilla County District Attorney Dan Primus says he plans to present evidence of this shooting to a grand jury once his investigation is complete.

Primus says it's standard procedure for his office to present cases such as this to a grand jury.

The victim, 55-year-old Tere King was shot by Athena Police Sergeant Erik Palmer on Pambrun Road south of Highway 11 after King exited his vehicle with a firearm.

King was involved in an extensive police hunt since Saturday after eluding officers following a high-speed chase.
