Eagle Point, OR– Body camera video of an officer-involved shooting that occurred last month in Eagle Point has been publicly released.
The shooting happened on September 19, 2018, at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant on Linn Road near Highway 62.
According to police, one EPD officer was trying to contact a suspect, Matthew Thayer Graves, after he was seen crossing the road against the light.
Prosecutors said the officer intended to talk to Graves about his alleged “failure to yield to a traffic control device.” However, Graves kept walking. The two eventually ended up in the restaurant’s restroom.
The officer confronted Graves, eventually drawing his TASER after Graved didn’t comply with his commands. A second officer arrived to help, however, Graves continued to resist. That’s when the three reportedly went to the ground and two shots were fired by one of the officers, who said he thought Graves had a gun.
Police say when it was all over, one officer suffered minor injuries. Graves, however, died.
The two officers were placed on administrative leave, which is typical in these types of cases.
Darin May, Eagle Point’s chief of police, said it’s the first time in his twenty years that there’s been an officer-involved shooting in the city.
On October 24, 2018, the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office said the officer who fired the fatal shots had been cleared of any wrong-doing and both officers acted within the scope of their duties. They will not face charges in connection with the death of Graves.

Thompson Nguyen drove to the plant on Blanchard Road, climbed over a fence and began to stalk the campus, carrying a hatchet in one hand and a metal staff in the other. Authorities said he also had another hatchet, three pipes, seven knives, nunchucks, a GoPro camera, and a sword. According to the DA's Office, Officers Adam Hutson and Timothy Faye arrived soon after and tried to get Nguyen to drop his weapons. Nguyen told officers, "Shoot me!" and "Kill me!" numerous times. One officer replied, "We don't want to shoot."

Officer's fired on Nguyen once he approached them with the hatchet and the metal staff and got within striking range. Authorities say Nguyen suffered from mental illness.

Nguyen was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the DA's report, after the shooting, officers found a fake police badge and journals in Nguyen's car in which he wrote that Metcalf employees had put microchips in his brain.

The department said officers were called to the Coral Springs Mall on Thursday because teens were harassing patrons, and a mother claimed one of the teens shoved her 5-year-old child to the ground.
Police banned the group from the mall at the request of its security team, but police said they eventually returned. After one person was arrested, police said the girl in the video attempted to “incite” other teens.
“Officers attempted to take her into custody, at which time she began to fight and resist arrest. Due to her stature and aggressive behavior, officers took her to the ground attempting to get her to release her fists,” the department said in a statement.
The teen’s mother, Jessica Dennis, said the officer went “completely overboard.”
“Her hands are pinned up, he’s fish tailing her whole body with her shorts. It was just too much going on and she clearly wasn’t aggressive,” Dennis said in a news conference, CBS Miami reports.
The family’s attorney, Meeghan Moldof, only spoke about the moments captured on video and said she wouldn’t comment on the criminal aspect of the case. “But to say that the police officer was justified to punch her continuously while he has his on her back and her hands under her belly, the video speaks for itself.”
Police said they are not investigating the officer’s actions, however, that could change if the mother decides to file a formal complaint

Juan Angel Pinedo had several chances to put his gun down before being shot and killed by Las Cruces police officers, said Las Cruces Police Chief Patrick Gallagher.
Pinedo, 32, led police officers on a foot pursuit for several blocks and eventually across the Las Cruces High School campus before he was fatally shot. Pinedo refused to listen to at least a dozen command from officers, Gallagher said at a news conference on Thursday.
The officer-involved shooting occurred about 6 p.m. Sept. 27.
allagher said Pinedo jumped over a fence onto the southwest end of Las Cruces High's campus while being chased by police officers. That's when Pinedo dropped a handgun he was carrying, police said.
“At one point Pinedo’s hands were up in the air,” Gallagher said. “For unknown reasons, Pinedo turned around within seconds and reached for the gun. That’s when officers opened fire where he was hit four times, in the head and upper torso. He was pronounced dead on the scene.”
Gallagher said four officers fired a combined 18 shots at Pinedo. Each of the officers who fired a weapon was placed on standard administrative leave and each has since returned to duty, he said. Police have not released the names of the officers.
