PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Police Chief Mike Reese calls this weekend's deadly shootings "disheartening" and a disappointing way to start the new year.
He and Portland Mayor Sam Adams held a last-minute news conference Monday to address recent officer-involved shootings.
"It is incredibly disheartening because our overall crime rate is down but these few incidents have been very violent," Reese says.
