BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — As they carried out an undercover operation, Beaverton police opened fire on a man they say was involved in a sex trafficking operation.
The shooting near SW West Slope and 83rd happened around 11:35 a.m. Thursday, authorities said.
After one person was taken into custody, another person — identified as 20-year-old Calvin Ramone Davenport — accelerated his car toward an officer, police said. It was then that the officer-involved shooting took place.
The driver fled the scene in a blue Infiniti, which was later found at SW West Slope and SW Canyon Lane.
“I live 2 houses away and heard some screeching of tires and then a loud crash and instantly knew it was a pretty big accident,” said neighbor Natasha, who declined to provide her last name. She “came out to see what was going on.”
“That’s a little concerning that he’s still out there especially knowing it’s after a shooting,” neighbor Joseph Gicas told KOIN 6 News. “I had no idea.”
Hours later, police said a K-9 brought in to track the suspect failed to find anyone. The K9 did, however, track the suspect into Southwest Portland between SW Scholls Ferry Road and SW Shattuck Road.
Davenport is wanted for 1st-degree attempted assault, unlawful use of a weapon, attempt to elude and promoting prostitution.
He’s 5-foot-9, 130 pounds and has dark hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt.
No officers were seriously hurt. Anyone with information should call 911.
