Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland Mayor Sam Adams says he won’t implement an arbitrator’s ruling that a police officer fired after he shot an unarmed man in the back in 2010 should be reinstated. Adams said yesterday he believes officer Ronald Frashour violated Portland’s policy and training protocols regarding allowed use of deadly force when he shot Aaron Campbell.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland Police say four men in ski masks entered an apartment, assaulted the resident and stole his electronics and his car. The home invasion robbery happened about 3:20 this morning in the southeast part of the city. The victim told police one of the men was armed with a handgun and struck him in the face with it. The suspects later bound the victim’s hands before fleeing.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police say a 20-year-old woman reports she was stabbed late last night along Division Street in the southeast part of the city. Sgt. Pete Simpson tells The Oregonian the woman was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Officers had no immediate information on the attacker.

ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — Federal figures show an above-average snowpack for much of Oregon, which is good news for farmers who depend on melting snow to water their crops. Measurements in March were at 124 percent of average in the Willamette Basin and 132 percent on Mount Hood. The report predicts that more water than usual will flow through streams in the western and northern parts of the state. But in Southeastern Oregon, levels were less than half of normal.
