Detectives are investigating Friday's shooting by Fairview police, and the mother of the man killed disputes the police account.
Shortly before midnight Friday, two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call to Wood Creek Apartments near the corner of Northeast 203rd Avenue and Halsey Street. There, one or both officers fired their weapon, killing Larry M. McKinney, a 37-year-old with a lengthy criminal history who lived in an apartment with his mother, Sandra Kelley.
McKinney was booked in Multnomah County jails 62 times since 1993, according to jail records. According to his mother, his early troubles stemmed from drugs, leading to a state prison sentence for assault. His more recent arrests had to do with drinking and related issues, such as probation violations, she said.
McKinney spent some time working at Precision Castparts and on an Alaskan fishing boat, but had his fingers crushed on the boat, and has been unemployed. He spent two weeks in jail earlier this month, split between a Multnomah County probation violation and a drunken-driving conviction in Umatilla. He was slated to go into a treatment program in the coming weeks, Sandra Kelley said.
He is the father of two daughters, 3 and 9, and a 10-year-old son. His children's mother has custody, but McKinney remained close to them, his mother said. "He's a great father. He cooks for them, he plays with them, he dances with them. He's a big kid himself, basically."
62 times since 1993, according to jail records
And he was just beginning to turn his life around.
“62 times since 1993, according to jail records”
One thing’s for sure, he won’t make 63.
A frequent flyer for sure. Sadly he lived his life as a pimple on societies butt. Not a bad mullet though.
How could you not trust a face like that?
...with a lengthy criminal history who lived in an apartment with his mother...
She said he was a good boy and had just placed Jesus in his heart. He was turning his life around and was going to go to college and get a PHD in the social sciences.
This is simply a tragedy that a good boy like him would be shot down like a rabid dog. Well, the more I think about it he was a rabid human wasn’t he?
Sounds like he led a pretty useless life, but he found someone to breed with him. I hope the kids turn out better, but being raised by a mother who had 3 kids by this loser, it isn’t going to be easy.
