A man accused of firing shots at 122nd Avenue and East Burnside in Portland is scheduled to go before a judge Tuesday.

Derrick Tolliver, 34, faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a loaded firearm, discharging a firearm in the city, and carrying a concealed weapon.

The shots were fired at about 5:15 p.m. Monday evening.

A 911 caller provided a description of the suspect.

When officers arrived in the area, they quickly located Tolliver walking southbound on 122nd Avenue and Ash Street, police said.

The suspect followed police commands to get on the ground where officers took him into custody without incident.

Police found a handgun in Tolliver's bag and learned that he was involved in a fight with several other people at the intersection before he fired several shots into the air, detectives told FOX 12.

Tolliver was booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
