Portland Police Bureau announces arrests in a November fatal crash near Gresham and a shooting from October.

VIA MCSO - FROM LEFT: Jason McFadden and Greg Green The Portland Police Bureau has made arrests in an east-side shootout in October, as well as a hit-and-run that left a pedestrian dead in November.

Police say the crash happened around 6:51 p.m. on Nov. 17 in the 16000 block of Southeast Stark Street in the Glenfair neighborhood, not far from the city's border with Rockwood.

Investigators have charged Jason Sherwood McFadden, 44, with first-degree manslaughter, fatal hit-and-run and reckless driving after he allegedly sped away after striking 27-year-old pedestrian Daniel Lopez-Herrera, who died 10 days later in the hospital from injuries received during the crash.

Police say they found the car that struck Lopez on Stark Street near Southeast 160th Avenue.

McFadden, a longtime area resident who was living in Gresham, had been cited for driving with a suspended license more than a dozen times since 2015, according to court records. In May, a Gresham police officer allegedly stopped McFadden as he drove away from a known drug house in a stolen car, per court documents in a still-open case.

McFadden is being held at the downtown jail at this time.

Suspect arrested in shooting

In a separate incident, Portland Police in the East Precinct say they have arrested a man — recently federally convicted on charges of being a felon in possession of a gun — on charges of being a felon in possession of a gun, unlawful use of a weapon and possession of a gun.

Police say Gregory Allen Green, 39, was arrested early on Jan. 15 after police served a search warrant on a residence in Estacada. A SWAT team with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said the arrest happened without incident, but police found handgun ammo and body armor, which felons are not allowed to possess.

According to the warrant affidavit, Green was involved in a fist fight that escalated into a shoot-out. Witnesses saw McFadden and his girlfriend fighting with another man and his girlfriend, per court documents. Soon after the fight ended, someone returned in a car and opened fire.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, when officers responded to the 1600 block of Northeast 66th Avenue.

Police found a Galaxy Note cell phone and one white Nike shoe at the scene, and after charging the cell phone, saw several emails addressed to "Greg Green" on the phone's lock screen. After obtaining a search warrant to open the phone, a text message from his romantic partner regarding a missing shoe was also seen.

Bullet holes were found in a parked car and mailbox, per court documents. The other shooter, who apparently opened fire first, has not been identified or arrested, per records.

Green remains in the downtown jail at this time.
