Police: Lieutentant committed suicide

An 18-year veteran of the Portland Police Bureau apparently committed suicide on Friday in Oregon City.

The bureau announced the death of Lieutenant Arnold Warren at his home in a Saturday evening press release. It said the death was being investigated by the Oregon City Police and Medical Examiner. No reason for the suicide was given.

"This is a tragic loss for the Portland Police Bureau and City of Portland, our thoughts and prayers are with Lieutenant Warren's family and friends during this difficult time," Mayor and Police Commissioner Sam Adams said in the release.

"Lieutenant Warren spent 18 years serving the Police Bureau and the Community. We are all saddened by this terrible news," said Reese, who asked Portlanders to keep Warren's family and friends in their prayers.
