Autopsy conducted on driver killed by Bend police

BEND, Ore. (AP) - An autopsy has been conducted on the man who was shot and killed by Bend police during a traffic stop last week.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel has yet to provide information on the results. He said interviews with witnesses are continuing, and more details will likely be released next week.

Police have said the 31-year-old man, Michael Jacques, was resisting arrest when the shooting occurred Friday night.

A witness provided a brief cell phone video to KTVZ. The video taken from a distance at night doesn't clarify what happened, but a faint pop can be heard, followed by four or five loud gunshots as the minivan lurches forward.

Police have yet to say if Jacques was armed or what led to the use of deadly force.
