Suspect in NE Portland shooting turns himself in

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police say the suspect wanted in a NE Portland shooting turned himself in Friday.

Just before 3 p.m. Friday, investigators say Bradley O'Rourke, 30, told them he shot and killed Anton Lawshawn Hill, 33, and injured another 21-year-old woman outside of Club Skinn.

O'Rourke is facing both murder and an attempted murder charge in connection with Wednesday's shooting.

Police have not yet said what compelled O'Rourke to turn himself in.

Investigators believe the shooting stemmed from some sort of argument outside of Club Skinn on the 4500 block of NE 60th Avenue early Wednesday morning.

Police say things escalated quickly, and that's when O'Rourke allegedly opened fire, hitting Hill and the other victim, and then ran away from the scene.

Police say the female victim is expected to be just fine, but Hill died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Hill's family says, while they are still coping with his death, an arrest in his murder eases their pain.

"We are pleased that he's no longer on the streets and he's not out to get into someone else," said Hill's uncle, Ray Lampkin Jr.

"We're glad he is in custody, and now we hope justice will be served."

Hill's family says they have no idea who O'Rourke is, and until his arrest they had never heard of him.

They plan to seek answers in the courtroom at O'Rourke's first court appearance May 13.
