Portland man arrested for threatening mother

by: MULTNOMAH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - Daniel Ryan Kelly KingA Portland man was arrested for domestic violence against his mother Wednesday morning.

Daniel Ryan Kelly King, 26, is also charged with gun crimes.

His 63-year-old mother was able to exit her home and call police.

According to police, 7:25 a.m., on Jan. 22, East Precinct officers responded to a residence in the 2100 block of Southeast 76th Avenue on the report that a man pointed a gun at his mother.

Several officers arrived in the area and began surrounding the home to allow for phone contact with the victim. The 63-year-old victim was able to exit the home safely and provided officers with information about her son, whom she said had been consuming alcohol, had a history of heroin abuse and was acting erratically in the home.

The victim told officers that her son strangled her and pointed a gun at her inside the home.

King eventually exited the home unarmed, but was not cooperative and tried to re-enter the home. Because of that, police K-9 "Justus" was deployed to hold onto King until officers could to take him into custody. King suffered a minor dog bite and was treated by medical personnel at the scene.

In a subsequent search of the residence, three firearms were located and seized: a shotgun and two handguns. Numerous rounds of ammunition were also placed into evidence.

King is charged with two counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Strangulation (Domestic Violence), Menacing (Domestic Violence), and Pointing a Firearm at Another Person.
