According to  report: “Man shot, killed by police officer in Kelso identified as 27-year-old transient,”By Jim Ryan | The Oregonian/OregonLive, August 19, 2016 (thanks to Holy Family Monastery):

Ali tried to shoplift from a Flying K gas station food mart in West Kelso shortly after 8 a.m., deputies said. They said the store’s clerks told him to leave, and he threatened them and walked away. The Kelso officer, John Johnston, arrived shortly thereafter to take a report.

As Johnston and one of the clerks were reviewing surveillance footage in an office, Ali returned to the store and began hitting a clerk and a customer with the stick, authorities said.

Cowlitz County Sheriff Mark Nelson said in a news conference Wednesday that Johnston tried to intervene but was struck in the head. Johnston was also injured in the arm and leg, police said. Johnston then shot Ali.

Johnston is a 22-year member of the Kelso Police Department, deputies said. Johnston, the clerk and the customer were taken to a hospital, and each of them were treated and released.

The encounter was Ali’s second at the Flying K that morning, deputies said. They said he showed up at the store around 1:10 a.m., toting a flat board, and was told to leave by police and employees. Police took the board
