Suspect in Parkrose shooting arrested
This morning, around 4 a.m., East Precinct police officers went to a residence in the 12100 block of Southeast Bush Street with information the suspect in the October 6th shooting in Parkrose — 33-year-old Skylar Sherwood Shaffer — would be there.
Officers deployed around the location and, by loud speaker, announced their presence then demanded Shaffer come out, which he did and was arrested without incident.
Shaffer was transported to the Detective Division downtown where he was interviewed; he was later lodged in the Multnomah County Detention Center and charged with Attempted Aggravated Murder and is being held in lieu of $250,000 dollars bail.
On Oct. 6, 2011, around 12:30 p.m., police officers assigned to North Precinct responded to the report of a person shot in the area of Northeast 120th Avenue and Shaver Street near Parkrose High School Community Center. As officers were enroute, additional information was received that the 9-1-1 caller refused to help officers, and would say only her boyfriend had been shot.
When officers arrived in the area, they did not locate a crime scene or any victims. More information helped determine the shooting occurred at a residence in the 4600 block of Northeast 112th Avenue.
About an hour later, the 29-year-old male shooting victim walked into Southwest Washington Medical Center in Vancouver, Washington, suffering from multiple, but non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
