BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) -- An internal review by the Beaverton Police Department is underway after a drug-influenced teen overpowered an officer, took his gun and fired the weapon inside city hall one week ago.
Several officers tried to subdue the suspect, Jared Leone, when he allegedly became violent. Surveillance video shows the officer tried to subdue the 18-year-old who was high on mushrooms, but he was still able to take the gun from the holster of Sgt. Robert Davis.
The review showed Davis, a 25-year veteran of the force, did nothing wrong and his holster did not fail.
"He's very tactically sound. We've looked into that as well," said Beaverton Police Det. Jim Shumway. "He could not have done anything differently to have a different outcome here."
The holster is a Level 3 holster, which means the officer must unlock three mechanisms before removing the weapon. In this case, Leone was allegedly able to remove the gun from the holster.
Investigators determined the officers involved used tremendous restraint when dealing with the suspect. Some people said deadly force could have been used.
"We are grateful for the outcome," Shumway said. "It could've been much worse."
None of the officers involved are being disciplined. In fact, they are being applauded for their use of restraint in what could have been a deadly incident.
