Police agencies join together to solve an attempted murder on 82nd Avenue, just south of Powell Boulevard

On September 8th, just after 9:30 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to a shooting in the 3300 block of S.E. 82nd Avenue of Roses, a bit south of Powell Boulevard. When officers arrived, they found an adult man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to an area hospital and did survive his injuries. Investigators were able to identify a juvenile, and 24 year-old Charlie Hernandez, as suspects in the attempted murder, and an arrest warrant was issued for the juvenile and Hernandez. On Friday, September 16th, Charlie Hernandez was taken into custody at his Parole Officer's office.

A day later, on Saturday, September 17th, investigators learned that the juvenile suspect was to be found in the 4600 block of N. Fessenden Street — and they planned and executed a search warrant, in which he juvenile suspect was taken into custody without incident. Additionally, detectives recovered items of evidence related to the shooting. Washington County Sheriff's Deputies then assisted the Portland Police Bureau with serving a search warrant at a home in the 7000 block of S.W. Canyon Drive, where additional items of evidence were recovered.

The juvenile suspect was booked into the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center on charges of Attempt Murder in the Second Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.

The investigation involved members of the Portland Police Bureau's "Enhanced Community Safety Team" (ECST), as well as PPD detectives, the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT), PPB Air Support, the Focused Intervention Team (FIT), North Precinct officers, and the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
