Before officers arrived at the 24000 block of Southeast Oak Street in Gresham, a relative had disarmed McDowell but he found another gun to confront police, this time with a rifle and scope.
McDowell died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police were not injured and the names of McDowell's family were not released.
Anthony Leo McDowell was a sergeant with the Army Reserve with more than 20 years of military service, including duty in the Persian Gulf and Iraq, and recently served with the 671st Engineer Company training soldiers in demolition techniques.
