ACLU Criticizes LMPD Tazer Use Cops Save Christmas April 29, 2007 Dec 22, 2008 June 19, 2006 March 16, 2009 Sept 2, 2008 Officer Richard Kunz Operation Falcon Trooper James Cress

On August 29th, 2013 Trooper Matt Zistel pulled over John Van Allen for speeding along I-84 about 100 miles east of Portland, Oregon.

Officials say that Allen, 34, was driving a Cadillac and had all three of his children inside. After stopping the vehicle, he can be seen exiting in military fatigues.

After Zistel yells for the man to get back in his vehicle, Allen pulls a gun from his waistband and begins approaching the trooper's cruiser while firing.

Zistel returns fire and Allen runs back to his car and flees. Officials say that while the video shows no visual injury to the suspect, he was shot in the chest.

The trooper radios that shots have been fired and that he himself had been hit in the side, but was OK.

Responding officers found the trooper wounded and tracked down Allen's vehicle a half-mile away with the man dead from the gunshot wound he suffered in the shootout.

Zistel was treated at a local hospital and released.
