Saturday’s shooting was the second time Sgt. Goodman has used deadly force, Malloch said. On May 3, 2008, Goodman made a traffic stop and was reaching inside an SUV to arrest the driver when the vehicle started moving, dragging Goodman more than 300 feet. Albert Wayne Kittrell, 48, of Portland was shot and killed.
Goodman, who was a patrol officer at that time, was found to have been justified in the use of deadly force.
“Sgt. Goodman is a highly decorated officer who has never been the subject of discipline,” Malloch said. “Throughout his career he has received 22 unit citations, two awards for bravery, and was selected as the department’s Police Officer of the Year in 2015.”
