Domestic violence, shooting suspect arrested
Portland police have arrested a man for allegedly hitting another adult with a rife butt in what was described as a case of "domestic violence."
Jason Royal Wicker, 42, faces two counts of menacing, one count of fourth-degree assault and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
East Precinct officers rushed to the 5000 block of Southeast 118th Avenue around 5:03 p.m. after being alerted to a "disturbance" on Sunday, Nov. 25, according to a news release.
Officers say they spoke to the alleged victim, an adult man, and several other people who had been inside the residence.
"During the investigation officers learned an adult male suspect was inside the residence, armed with several guns, and had reportedly struck the victim with the butt of a rifle," according to a news release.
The authorities say Wicker exited his home and fired a gun before charging toward the officers.
Wicker was taken into custody on Monday after being treated at an area hospital on Sunday night.
Wicker has two misdemeanor convictions on his record, including reckless driving in 2016 and carrying a concealed weapon in 1995, according to court records.
Wicker remains in the downtown Multnomah County jail at the time of this report.
