Which Procedure Did Cop Ignore on Aaron Campbell Shooting?

Still waiting. He got fired yesterday for it. You’d think the powers that be would be able to articulate precisely what rule was broken by Officer Frashour. So far I’m going through the papers here and can’t find the actual rule or protocol in the use of deadly force that was broken.
Here’s what the Chief’s report says.

The chief agreed that it was unreasonable for Frashour, a nine-year Portland officer, to believe that Campbell posed an immediate threat of death or physical injury. Frashour seemed to only focus on his AR-15 rifle without noticing what was going on around him, the board found. The chief further found Frashour’s answers to internal affairs’ questions troubling. Frashour refused to acknowledge that the six beanbag shotgun rounds that struck Campbell before the fatal shot could have caused a pain reaction, such as running away, and said he never considered the possibility that Campbell was unarmed.
