'Startled' Beaverton car prowler linked to attempted murder
A man, who Beaverton police say was caught on camera breaking into vehicles at the Sorrento Bluff Apartments in Beaverton, has been charged with attempted aggravated murder in Portland.
Treyvon Jacob Harrison, 18, went viral for all the wrong reasons on Oct. 1 after a dashcam snapped a flash photograph that appears to show Harrison looking for items to steal from a parked vehicle at the complex on Southwest Maverick Terrace.
Harrison, who grew up in New York, has recently been living in Vancouver, Washington, with friends and in a car, per court records. He has now been charged in connection with an alleged shooting near Southeast 81st Avenue and Woodward Street in Portland.
Police suspect Harrison of being the shooter in an incident where bullets struck two occupied apartments and two empty vehicles around 1:35 a.m. on June 19. No one was injured.
Harrison faces charges of attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful use of a vehicle and eluding police in Multnomah County. Court records report that as a juvenile, Harrison was convicted of third-degree theft and first-degree robbery.
In Beaverton, he is charged with three counts of unlawful entry into a motor vehicle. He remains behind bars at the downtown Portland jail at this time.
