PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A bicyclist with a knife who was shot by a Beaverton police officer was indicted by a Washington County grand jury for unlawful use of a weapon.

The incident happened around 9 a.m. September 7 by a 7-Eleven near Jesuit High School. An employee there told police the suspect threatened them with the knife. The man also went into the nearby BottleDrop to evade police. A spokesperson for BottleDrop said none of their employees were injured.

Officers found the suspect, now identified as Anthony A. Shaner, and then, for reasons still unclear, Officer Dan Coulson shot Shaner. Shaner was said to be alert, conscious and screaming afterward.

Shaner is 22. Coulson is a 22-year veteran of the Beaverton Police Department.

Shaner is still in the hospital, but authorities said once he’s released from the hospital he will be taken into custody on the indictment.
