Police release the names of officers involved in fatal shooting

Forest Grove police officials last week released the names of the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Neil Bruce Marcy on Oct. 8.

According to police reports and witnesses' accounts, Marcy was shot after confronting police officers with two handguns outside his home at College Place Apartments in Forest Grove shortly before midnight.

Officers Thomas Siciliano and Matthew Smith of the Forest Grove Police Department and Officer Doug Schuetz of the Cornelius Police Department are on paid administrative leave while county law enforcement officials investigate the shooting. That practice is standard procedure in any fatal police shooting.

Capt. Aaron Ashbaugh of the Forest Grove Police Department said Sicliano has 11 years experience on the force while Smith and Schuetz each have been employed for five years with their agencies.
