Two officers in deadly shooting are identified

from the Oregonian

Law enforcement officers involved in a shooting that killed a 27-year-old Gresham man in Clackamas County were identified Saturday as Sandy police Officer William J. Bergin and Clackamas County sheriff's Deputy David E. Willard.

The shooting occurred Thursday on Southeast 362nd Avenue after Fouad Kaady climbed on top of a patrol car. Kaady, suspected in a series of at least three hit-and-run crashes, was bloody, naked and combative, according to the sheriff's office.

Kaady was shot by Bergin or Willard or both, according to Detective Jim Strovink, a spokesman for the sheriff's office. Strovink said additional information, such as the number of gunshot wounds, won't be available until he receives a formal report from an autopsy Friday.

Bergin, 24, was hired as a Sandy police officer in May, having previously worked as a Lincoln City police officer for about 11/2 years. Willard, 44, has been a Clackamas County deputy since 1994. He previously worked for the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, Willamina police and Portland Public Schools police.

Both men are on paid administrative leave, which is customary after a fatal shooting.
