Dead patient in Portland police shooting was unarmed.

Yesterday the news was that an ER patient was killed in the parking lot by police -- three officers fired ~ nine shots when he "showed a gun" to a security officer.

The news tonight is that he was unarmed. He had a piece of plastic in his hand, of some kind.

The lethal reponse to the black plastic took place despite the fact that a negotiation team had been called, not yet arrived.

Here's yesterday's story. Nothing on the Internet yet about today's development.

Yes, the patient was a felon who had recently been released from prison and had robbed a bank. We don't know yet if police knew that when they fired.

Portland police are already under investigation for being quick on the trigger with disturbed individuals.
