Firearm and Components Seized, Teen Arrested During Tactical Operation (Photo) - 02/06/24

A firearm and components were seized, and a teen arrested, during an early morning tactical operation.

On Tuesday, February 6, 2024, members of the Portland Police Bureau’s Focused Intervention Team and Enhanced Community Safety Team, assisted by the Special Emergency Reaction Team and Crisis Negotiation Team, executed a high-risk search and arrest warrant in the 6900 block of North Jersey Street, in response to a recent series of shootings in the Portsmouth Neighborhood.
Officers located a 9 mm handgun with a 50-round drum magazine and a “switch” which allows the handgun to become a fully automatic firearm. Officers also located evidence of a negligent discharge of a firearm inside the residence.

Keandre N. Horgain, 18, of Portland, was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on the following charges:

ORS (Oregon Revised Statues) - 166.272 Unlawful Possession of a Machine gun

ORS 166.250 Unlawful Possession of a Firearm

PCC (Portland City Code) - 14A.60.010 Possession of a Loaded Firearm in a Public Place.

The Bureau’s Focused Intervention Team (FIT) and Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) work in partnership with the National Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (NICJR) on a focused deterrence strategy to reduce gun violence called “Portland Ceasefire.” This citywide strategy centers on collaboration among Portland’s Community Safety Division and Office of Violence Prevention, City leaders, the Portland Police Bureau, and community groups.

The Focused Intervention Team (FIT) is comprised of a Lieutenant, two Sergeants and 12 Officers who were selected to be a part of this specialty unit tasked with helping address gun violence in the city. In between emergency calls, FIT builds relationships with community members and proactively deters violence consistent with their mandate. FIT is overseen by a group of community volunteers known as the Focused Intervention Team Community Oversight Group, or FITCOG. The FITCOG commenced in June 2021 in response to the gun violence crisis in Portland to work with the Focused Intervention Team (FIT) and assist with recommendations to reduce gun violence through prevention, intervention, and response. For more information, see their website: https://www.portland.gov/fitcog . FIT also collaborates with ECST, a team of Sergeants, Detectives, and Officers which focuses on investigating shootings.

FIT and ECST consider all gunfire aimed at Portland community members to be attempted murder cases. Eyewitnesses or video evidence is crucial in solving these cases and these crime victims need people to come forward with any information. If anyone has information about any shooting case, please contact crimetips@police.portlandoregon.gov .

Information can be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers of Oregon. Anyone wishing to submit a secure and anonymous tip regarding any unsolved felony crime should visit http://www.crimestoppersoforegon.com or visit the App Store and download P3 Tips for your mobile device.
