SALEM — A grand jury has ruled that a Marion County deputy was justified in the April 25 fatal shooting of a Portland man who shot a police officer after the man barricaded himself in a van at a truck stop in Aurora.

Law enforcement officers testified that 27-year-old Micaiah Clinton shot at police more than a dozen times, injuring Woodburn Police Officer Jesse Ponce, a member of Marion County Interagency SWAT, the Statesman Journal reported.
