UPDATE: PPB's Assault Detail Makes Arrest in September's Parkrose Neighborhood Shooting - 11/20/20

On September 17, 2020, North Precinct officers responded to the 11000 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard on reports of a shooting where a victim had been shot and injured. Members of Portland Police Bureau's Assault Detail were assigned to follow-up on the investigation and assumed the case. Through their work, the officers located crucial evidence leading them to a person of interest, 33-year-old Kevin Hill. After an exhausted effort, officers identified probable cause to arrest Hill as the shooting suspect. Because of the officers' efforts, they were able to obtain a warrant for Hill's arrest.

Today, members of the Detective Division's Assault Detail and the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) conducted a joint mission to locate and arrest Hill on his arrest warrant. Hill was located in his vehicle in the 8900 block of Southeast Ellis Street. SERT members contacted Hill, implemented a safe apprehension plan, and took him into custody.

Hill will be booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Attempted Murder, Assault II, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
