News Release
Milwaukie Police investigate attempted murder - 03/17/23


On 3/16/23 at approximately 10:20 PM, Milwaukie Police Officers were called to the 2900 Block of SE Harrison St. on reports of gun shots.  Officers arrived and located a male in a vehicle attempting to leave the scene later identified as Simon Brassard, 22 of Portland. Officers learned Brassard was involved in the incident and attempted to contact him. Brassard remained in his vehicle refusing to exit. Officers obtained witness information Brassard was potentially armed with a gun and summoned additional resources from Clackamas County Sheriff’s office and the Portland Police Bureau air support unit. A crisis negotiator began speaking with Brassard.


Officers spoke with witnesses and learned gunfire occurred at a nearby residence, where a handgun was subsequently located. After successful negotiations, Brassard surrendered from the vehicle and was safely detained. 


Milwaukie Detectives learned shots were fired into a residence at the location and also fired from inside that same residence into the neighborhood where several bullets struck a neighboring home, shattering a window. No one was injured in the exchange of gunfire and police recovered two handguns. The incident occurred between acquaintances and there is no danger to the public. 


Brassard is being lodged at the Clackamas County Jail on charges of Attempted Murder, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Menacing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Simac at 503-786-7471 or email MPD case 23-1835


This investigation is ongoing and there is no further information to share at this time.
