The man accused of shooting his girlfriend and killing her mother made his first court appearance Wednesday.
Jason Hogan, 33, is charged with aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder.
Deputies said Hogan shot his girlfriend Gina Perrone and her mother Norma Perrone in their Happy Valley Home on Sunday, then went on the run until authorities finally caught him in Beaverton on Tuesday.
Gina Perrone survived and she's in serious condition at OHSU, but Norma Perrone died.
Hogan appeared in court through a video feed from jail wearing a suicide prevention vest and rocking back and forth.
After a brief explanation of the charges against him, Hogan shouted out, "I love you mama! I love you Gina!"
Thea Bidwell attended the arraignment in support of Hogan.
She is a former girlfriend and long-time friend and said she is still in shock over the shooting.
"I don't have any idea what happened or why it happened," Bidwell said. "I just know there are a lot of hearts hurting out there today and I want Jason to know that we love him."
Bidwell said Hogan has suffered several head injuries.
He was in a motorcycle crash and she said he had metal plates put in his head.
Since then, Bidwell thinks he's never been the same.
"His aunt has been getting mental health evaluations done trying to get him on anti-depressants and all that but I don't think it was every properly evaluated."
A man we are calling "John" is also Hogan's old friend.
He and his wife "Beth" told only FOX12 how Hogan allegedly held them at gunpoint for three and a half hours Monday night while he planned his escape.
They think the shooting was fueled by anger and drugs.
"He said his girlfriend was cheating on him and he was tired of her lying," Beth said. "He got his pistol and he started shooting - he didn't want to hurt anyone, but when he started shooting at people, he said he couldn't stop."
"Yeah, he said ‘I couldn't stop. I just lost it,'" John said. "And he said ‘it's because I've been slamming so much dope lately.' I mean, I know that crystal meth takes people by the horns and takes them places they don't want to go."
Bidwell agreed that Hogan has an anger problem, but she never imagined he'd end up in jail charged with murder.
"I still don't know if the reality of it has hit me yet."
Hogan is being held in the Clackamas County Jail without bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 13.
