Man shot in Aloha, suspect arrested for attempted murder
A man was hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting Friday afternoon, Sept. 9, and the man suspected of shooting him is in custody for attempted murder, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.
Authorities said Saturday morning, Sept. 10, that law enforcement officers had arrested 28-year-old Reese William Feole in connection with the shooting near Southwest Division Street and 172nd Avenue in Aloha.
Feole, an Aloha resident, was identified as the suspect "almost immediately," the Sheriff's Office said.
According to the agency, Feole attempted to flee Beaverton police after an officer spotted him driving near the scene of the shooting.
Officers used what is called a pursuit intervention technique — a maneuver in which a police vehicle rams a suspect vehicle with the intent to force it to spin out — to stop Feole before arresting him in the 15700 block of Southwest Village Lane, the Sheriff's Office said Saturday. They reportedly recovered a handgun and ammunition from the driver's seat of the vehicle Feole was driving.
Detectives determined that Feole and the victim, whose name has not been released, knew each other.
The man who was found shot at about 4:30 p.m. Friday was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, the Sheriff's Office said. He remains in critical condition as of Saturday morning.
Feole is being held at the Washington County Jail on presumptive charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault and first-degree robbery. Additional charges are possible, the Sheriff's Office said.
