PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 61-year-old man suspected of shooting his wife on Sunday was arrested in the early hours of Monday — after police found him hiding in a cabinet.
Hillsboro police said Fidencio Diaz-Equiza was charged with attempted murder, 2nd-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. He was lodged into the Washington County Jail.
The investigation started Sunday evening when a 59-year-old woman was shot at a home near the Sunset Esplanade shopping area in Hillsboro.
The woman — later determined to be Diaz-Equiza’s wife — was taken to the hospital with a serious gunshot wound. She’s expected to survive.
The shooting happened in the 2700 block of SE Tumblestone Drive.
