FORUM •ÊKendra James' death elicits wide variety of reactions

A community forum on the Kendra James shooting will be held from

5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday at the Mount Olivet Family Life Center, 8725 N. Chautauqua Blvd.

Mayor Vera Katz promised to hold the forum after James was shot and killed by Portland police officer Scott McCollister while trying to flee after an early morning traffic stop May 5.

Katz said many people still have questions about the incident that need to be addressed, although a Multnomah County grand jury declined to indict McCollister for any crime related to the shooting.

Police officials are conducting an internal administrative review of the shooting that involves McCollister and the two other officers involved in the stop.

The review is expected to be completed by Tuesday.
