Subscribe to 107 JAMZ on

An Oregon State Police Trooper pulled a man dressed in military-style clothing over for speeding, and it ended in the trooper being shot in his side, and left the shooter dead.

According to reports Trooper Matthew Zistel pulled over John Van Allen for speeding.

The troopers dash cam video shows Van Allen exiting his car dressed in what seems to be military fatigues, Allen then stands in a defensive posture facing the police car with one arm behind his back.

After being told to get back in his car more than once, Van Allen doesn’t comply and then begins walking toward Zistel, and then pulls his gun from behind his back and begins to fire at the trooper.


Van Allen shoots Zistel in his side, returns back to his car, and speeds off. You can hear the trooper radio for help in the video.

According to KATV, the trooper’s injury wasn’t serious, and he was released from the hospital later that day. The could not be said for Allen.

When the trooper returned fire he struck Allen in the chest, other troopers found Allen half mile down the road, slumped over his steering wheel, dead.

Allen had his three (3) children in the car, a 10-year-old girl, 13-year-old boy, and a 15-year-old boy.

Deadly force has been deemed justified in the troopers return fire and shooting Allen. After all, why wouldn’t it be? The officer warned him more than once.
