Man with gun threatens food cart worker, police say
The Portland Police Bureau has arrested a man after he allegedly made threats and fired a round into the air in downtown Portland.
Central Precinct officers say the incideny began after they were dispatched to Southwest 2nd Avenue and Oak Street around 10:19 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19.
Police say the food cart operator was not injured in the incident, and police were unable to locate the suspect initially.
A half hour later, officers report they were flagged down by "someone," who told them the suspect returned and had pointed his gun toward the sky and opened fire.
"Assisting officers responded and challenged the suspect," according to a news release. "He was initially uncooperative and tried to walk away from them until an officer fired one less-lethal foam tipped projectile at him."
Police say 25-year-old Dominique Hadley Mann was arrested on charges of first-degree theft, menacing, unlawful possession of a gun, pointing a gun at a person, and firing a gun inside city limits.
The Gun Violence Reduction Team continues to study the case for "additional analysis and follow-up." A loaded .40 caliber Sig Sauer semi-automatic handgun, allegedly stolen, was reported to be found in Mann's pocket.
Mann has been charged with second-degree burglary, careless driving, strangulation and harassment in the past few years, according to court records.
Mann remains in the downtown jail at this time.
