News Release
Akeen Oliver indicted for the attempted murder of another person near Holladay Park - 01/17/20

Akeen Oliver indicted for the attempted murder of another person near Holladay Park

Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announced that a grand jury returned a four-count indictment against 26-year-old Akeen Oliver for the June 16, 2019 attempted murder of another person near Holladay Park.

The indictment charges Oliver with one count of attempted murder in the second degree with a firearm, one count of attempted assault in the first degree with a firearm, one count of unlawful use of a weapon with a firearm enhancement and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm with a firearm enhancement.

Court documents allege that Oliver – a convicted felon - unlawfully and intentionally used a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun and intentionally attempted to cause serious physical injury and the death of another person.

This investigation started on June 16, 2019 at approximately 5:30 p.m. when Portland Police received information about shots being fired near Holladay Park. As police responded, they learned the shooter fled the area. The Portland Police Bureau’s Gun Violence Reduction Team responded and located multiple pieces of gunfire evidence.

On October 7, 2019, law enforcement located and arrested Oliver in the 12200 block of Northeast Glisan Street in Portland, Oregon. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on a parole violation detainer.

In the months following this incident, officers and detectives from the Portland Police Bureau, Gresham Police Department and Vancouver Police Department have continued to investigate this shooting.

The grand jury returned its charging decision on January 16, 2020.

Like in all criminal and civil matters, electronic copies of court documents, which are not subject to a protective order, are available to the public through the Oregon eCourt Information (OECI) system.

No additional information can be released by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office at this time pursuant to the Oregon Rules of Professional Conduct.

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Oliver is innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office works closely with the City of Portland’s Office of Youth Violence Prevention and attends the bi-weekly Community Peace Collaborative meeting, which is a coalition of law enforcement, service providers and community members who are focused on encouraging people to take a stand against gun violence.

In August 2017, the Portland Area Crime Gun Initiative was formed in partnership the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Portland Police Bureau, Gresham Police Department, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, Oregon State Police, Oregon State Crime Lab, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the ATF.

The Portland Area Crime Gun Initiative works with its partners to prevent violent crime by identifying perpetrators, linking criminal activities, and identifying sources of crime guns for immediate disruption, investigation, and prosecution.
