PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A man fatally wounded by Portland police after they say he fired at them was an Iraq war veteran who had talked to a TV station about the challenges of post-traumatic stress disorder. The Multnomah County medical examiner’s office says 32-year-old Santiago A. Cisneros III died of the injuries received Monday night. Two officers say the man had a shotgun and fired at them when they encountered him on a parking lot roof in northeast Portland. They say they returned fire. Cisneros died at a Portland hospital. No officers were injured. In 2009, Cisneros said he had tried to kill himself eight months after leaving Iraq.
