Grand jury studies police shooting of naked Gresham man


SANDY, Ore. - A Clackamas County grand jury will meet Monday to decide if police were justified in fatally shooting a Gresham man last month.

Officers shot and killed Fouad Kaady when he was wandering naked and rowdy on SE 362nd Ave. in Sandy.

The officers received a report of a hit-and-run car accident and arrived to find Kaady naked and with no shoes on. As police tried to get him under control, they said he became combative. The officers tried to taser him -- but were not able to get Kaady to calm down.

At one point Kaady got on top of the patrol vehicle, which is when at least one of the officers shot him.

Kaady died at the scene.

The sheriff's office identified the two officers who fired at Kaady as as 24-year-old William Bergin, a Sandy Police officer, and 44-year-old deputy David Willard of the Clackamas County Sheriffs Office.
