More weekend shootings: One suspect arrested, another sought
UPDATE: Police also arrest man with stolen gun late Friday
Police investigated multiple shootings over the weekend. One suspect was arrested and at least one more is being sought.
In addition, a man was arrested with a stolen gun Friday.
In the first incident, police arrested a suspect in a Saturday afternoon shooting in Southeast Portland at his home after a six-hour standoff early Sunday.
Aaron Deon Kinsey, 24, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Attempted Murder and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
No one was injured in the shooting, standoff or arrested.
According to the police, the incident started at 6:15 p.m. on July 25 when East Precinct officers responded to the report of gunfire in the 1300 block of Southeast 160th Place.
Officers arrived in the area and contacted witnesses who said the suspect was an African American male in his 30s wearing dark clothing, and that he was possibly shooting at a dark-colored vehicle that was in the street. The witnesses did not know where the suspect went after the shooting.
Officers located damage to the garage of a residence but did not locate any gunshot victims.
The Gang Enforcement Team (GET) responded to conduct the investigation. They developed information that Kinsey was the shooter and that he was inside his home in the 1300 block of Southeast 160th Place.
Polce say officers made numerous attempts to persuade Kinsey to exit the home and surrender. The initial attempts were not successful, however, so, based on the information developed in the investigation and the belief that Kinsey was armed with a handgun, the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) responded to the scene to assist with the apprehension of Kinsey and the service of a search warrant.
At approximately 4:00 a.m. on July 26, SERT breached a door in the home using an explosive charge. Shortly after, Kinsey surrendered to police without incident.
Investigators searching the home seized two handguns.
In the second incident, police began an investigation after East Precinct officers responded to a report that a gunshot victim arrived at Portland Adventist Medical Center on Sunday morning.
The name of the victim was not immediately released. He is described as a 30-year-old man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
Based on the preliminary investigation, officers believe the victim was injured in a shooting that occurred at approximately 2:45 a.m. on July 26 near North Columbia Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
An unknown person drove the victim to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, but then left with him and took him to Portland Adventist Medical Center.
Gang Enforcement Team detectives responded to investigate the shooting.
Before either of those incidents, officers responded to two early Saturday morning reports of gunshots in North Portland which could be related.
No injuries or fatalities were immediately reported in relation to them.
According to police, at 4:10 a.m. on July 25, North Precinct officers responded to gunfire reports in the area of North Kerby Avenue and Willis Boulevard. The officers stopped in a parking lot, where they saw a group of 10 to 15 gang members dressed in red clothes. Several cars were leaving the area when officers arrived at which point the officers then heard gunshots off in the distance southeast of them.
Callers to 9-1-1 also reported seeing a vehicle drive by and shoot into Javiers Tacos, which is on North Vancouver Avenue and Lombard Street. When officers got to Javiers, they saw evidence of gunfire and damage to a window.
And before that, GET officers arrested a man with a stolen gun late Friday.
Marcus Dupree Giles, 30, is charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Loaded Firearm and Theft in the First Degree.
According to police, at 10:28 p.m., officers stopped a red GMC Yukon for speeding at Southeast 100th Avenue and Stark Street. During the stop, officers located a stolen handgun in the vehicle and arrested the driver. The gun had previously been reported stolen during a car prowl in Clark County, Washington.
