K9 helps nab suspect in roadway shooting near Hillsboro


Wilfredo Peraza-Domenech allegedly involved in car-to-car shooting

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An “armed and dangerous” suspect who was being sought after a car-to-car shooting early Friday was captured Friday afternoon in Washington County.

A man in a Dodge Caravan reportedly shot multiple times at a woman inside another vehicle at about 5:45 a.m. near the 4500 block of SW Minter Bridge Road south of Hillsboro. The woman was not injured.

Washington County deputies said they found the van near Mountain View Lane and Beaver Way in Forest Grove and spotted the suspect — 50-year-old Wilfredo Peraza-Domenech — running away from the van. Deputies quickly surrounded the property to stop the suspect from escaping.

Fern Hill Elementary School, Neil Armstrong Middle School and Swallowtail School were placed on lockout for a few hours while a tactical team secured a perimeter around the property and multiple law enforcement agencies responded to help.

Authorities searched the property for more than two-and-a-half hours before a K9 and his handler found Peraza-Domenech, deputies said. He was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon. His bail was set at $250,000.
