Initial press release on 9/28/22 at 11:10 a.m.:

Multnomah County sheriff’s deputies arrested the suspect wanted in the shooting death of a man at a Fairview home on Wednesday, September 28.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the home in the 600 block of Lincoln Street at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27th. Arriving deputies found the victim deceased in the home’s backyard. A perimeter was established around the property and information of the suspect’s identity and description were shared with law enforcement agencies across the region.

Deputies learned that a woman, who was described as having mobility issues, was still inside the home and needed help getting out. Deputies also learned that the suspect kept weapons inside the home. Based on this information, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) requested members of the East Metro Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team to respond to the scene. The SWAT team is a group of highly trained Multnomah County Sheriff’s deputies and Gresham Police officers that specialize in high-risk tasks. SWAT members entered the home, and the Gresham Police Department (GPD) launched a drone to provide aerial support and external lighting.

Shortly after entering the home, SWAT members located the woman in the basement area. She was not hurt. SWAT members escorted her out safely.

After performing a methodical, room-by-room search, around 10 p.m., SWAT members announced the home was clear; no additional people nor the suspect were located inside. Subsequently, the perimeter was reduced in size. Neighbors who lived inside the perimeter were allowed to move freely again, after being told earlier in the evening to stay inside for their safety.

Around 5:30 a.m., Wednesday, while detectives were at the home investigating, the suspect, 41-year old Anthony Tibbits, attempted to re-enter the crime scene. Deputies arrested Tibbits without incident.

Tibbits will be booked in the Multnomah County jail. His charges will be released to the public when he is booked into jail.

The victim’s identity is being withheld until next of kin notifications and other investigative steps are completed.

The East County Major Crimes Team (MCT) is leading the investigation. MCT consists of members from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Gresham Police Department, Oregon State Police, Port of Portland Police Department and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.

We want to extend our appreciation to the residents of Fairview, for their patience during this lengthy event that impacted the Old Town neighborhood. The area is safe; there is no longer a public safety threat.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information will be released at this time.
