Suspect in custody after barricading himself in NE Portland home for hours


A suspect who barricaded himself in a northeast Portland home has been taken into custody.

The Special Emergency Reaction and Crisis Negotiation Teams responded to a neighborhood in Northeast Portland where U.S. Marshals were trying to apprehend a man barricaded in a home.

Police arrived at the home in the 3400 block of Northeast 81st Avenue before 3 p.m. Thursday.

According to police, the suspect is wanted for attempted murder, robbery and additional charges in connection with a domestic violence investigation.

Officers closed Northeast Fremont Street between 82nd Avenue and 77th Avenue for hours as they attempted to get the suspect out of the home.

SERT officers used an explosive breach to open a door to the home and deployed multiple gas rounds into the home to get the suspect to surrender, according to police.

After several hours, SERT officers entered the home and arrested the suspect at about 10 p.m.

The suspect will be booked into the Multnomah County Jail on numerous charges. Police say his name and charges will be released Friday morning.
