23-year-old Santiago Hernandez arrested on assault, drive by shooting charges

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — One man was shot and another taken into custody for what Vancouver police said was a drive-by shooting Thursday night.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 p.m. Callers to police said they heard multiple gunshots at the Autumn Chase Apartments, 11301 NE 7th Street.

The wounded man, later determined to be 24, got into his vehicle and left. Detectives later contacted him at an area hospital, and he remains hospitalized at this time. Authorities have not released his name.

The suspect, Santiago Hernandez, was found leaving his residence. The 23-year-old was arrested following a traffic stop and taken to the Clark County Jail. He now faces assault and drive-by-shooting charges.

Investigators said the shooting may have been connected to an earlier dispute between the men.

The investigation is ongoing and involves detectives from the Safe Street Task Force, Major Crimes Unit and the Neighborhood Response Team, officials said.
