PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- The 34-year-old man killed in a shootout with an Oregon State Police trooper Thursday afternoon died from a single gunshot wound to the chest, authorities said Friday.
John Van Allen had no other injuries, the Oregon medical examiner said, and he died after being shot by Trooper Matthew Zistel.
Allen lived in Portland but had previous addresses in South Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Trooper Zistel was on traffic patrol along I-84 in a construction zone when he pulled Allen's car over for speeding shortly before 1 p.m. Allen got out of the car and fired at the trooper, wounding him in the side.
Zistel fired back and hit Allen in the chest. Allen got back in the car and drove about a half-mile until he slumped over the wheel and died.
There were three youths in Allen's car: 13- and 15-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl. Their names have not been released. They are in the custody of the Department of Human Services.
Zistel, 26, is a five-year veteran of the Oregon State Police. He was treated and released from the hospital on Thursday.
The investigation continues.
