Police Officer Brad Jones was shot and killed while assisting a probation officer during a meeting with a parolee at an apartment complex near the intersection of North 75th and West Glendale Avenues.

When Officer Jones arrived he made contact with the subject in the parking lot. The man suddenly produced a handgun and opened fire, wounding Officer Jones. He then stole Officer Jones' patrol car and fled the scene.

Despite his wounds, Officer Jones was able to radio for assistance and alert other officers to the shooting. Responding officers pursued the suspect until he crashed on West Glendale Avenue. The man attempted to flee, but exchanged gunfire with the officers and was critically wounded.

Officer Jones was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix where he died from his injuries at approximately 1:00 am.

Officer Jones had served with the Glendale Police Department for four years. He is survived by his wife and two young children, his parents, three brothers, and one sister.

I had the pleasure of meeting the parents of Officer Jones this morning. I simply knew them as relatives of a co-worker that had family in law enforcement. They asked if I collected police coins, which I do. I presented them with a Portland Police Bureau Training Division coin. What came next was both touching and emotional. They presented me with a memorial coin in honor of their son Bradley and told me the story of his death in the line of duty. I was moved by how brave and thoughtful they were in sharing this with me, and a few other co-workers. It was a pleasure meeting you Rick and Shannon Jones. It was a powerful reminder of the inherent dangers of this profession.
