The man shot and wounded by officers on Friday night may have been wielding a replica gun, Portland Police said Monday. The suspect, Ryan Beisley, spent a night in the hospital and was taken to the Multnomah County Jail.
Beisley was convicted of robbing several Oregon banks and sentenced in 2015 to six years in prison. The U.S. Marshal’s Service said he was transferred last month to a halfway house. When he did not report back there after going out, a judge issued a federal warrant for Beisley’s arrest.
Police responded to a call Friday night about a man yelling at employees at the Starbucks attached to the Hollywood District Fred Meyer.
Police initially said the 34-year-old was shot after he displayed a firearm. They now say it was a replica.
Four police officers who fired on Beisley remain on paid administrative leave.
