News Release
Officers Arrest Suspect, Seize Firearm in Portland's St. Johns Neighborhood (Photo) - 10/10/18

On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at 11:56 a.m., North Precinct and Youth Services Division officers responded to the report of a fight near Roosevelt High School, located at 6941 North Central Street.

As officers responded to the incident, a community member reported one of the suspects involved in the fight was armed with a handgun. When officers arrived in the area, a Roosevelt High School campus security officer and a community member provided officers with a description and last known location of the armed suspect. Officers located a juvenile male that matched the suspect's description near North Lombard Street and North Buchanan Avenue. The suspect was taken into custody without incident.

During the investigation, officers searched the area, and with the assistance of a community member, located a firearm that had reportedly been left behind by the suspect. The firearm was seized as evidence. (A photograph of the firearm is provided with this press release.)

The suspect was lodged at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Home. In compliance with Oregon Public Records Laws, the Police Bureau will not release the identity of the juvenile suspect.
