Man arrested on numerous charges after shooting in NE Portland

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Portland police arrested 21-year-old Dechavian Parks Thursday night in connection with the shooting. He will be arraigned Friday afternoon on several charges including attempted murder, burglary and rape.


Police say an 18-year-old woman was asleep in her home when Parks entered the unlocked home and sexually assaulted her. The woman was able to get away and awoke her mother, and they both ran outside and drove off in their SUV. Police say Parks shot at the SUV as they drove off, breaking out the back window.

Two boys and a woman who were later seen with Parks were questioned but not arrested.

Air 12 was over the scene as it unfolded shortly before 6 a.m. in the area of Northeast 103rd and Sandy Boulevard.
