Shooting damages KFC; leads to chase, crash, arrest

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A shooting that damaged a KFC resulted in a police chase and an arrest on Tuesday morning.

Portland police said they responded to the KFC at 8131 SE Powell Blvd at 4:05 a.m. after receiving reports of two people shooting at each other. Both suspects left the scene before officers arrived but damage consistent with bullet strikes was found. 

Officers then located one of the suspects fleeing in a dark blue BMW near the intersection of NE 102nd Ave and NE Sandy Blvd. They chased until the BMW crashed into a truck on NE Killingsworth St and Columbia Pkwy. 

The suspect -- later identified as 22-year-old Joel Miranda -- fled on foot but was found with the help of a canine team a short time later. 

Miranda was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of driving while suspended, attempt to elude by vehicle, reckless driving, reckless endangering, attempt to elude on foot, fail to perform the duties of a driver and possession of methamphetamine.

There were no reports of injuries as a result of this shooting.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should call the Gang Enforcement Team at 503.823.4106.
