PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Nearly 6 months after one man was seriously wounded in a Gresham shootout, the 36-year-old suspect was arrested in Southeast Portland.

Around 1 a.m. on October 24, 2020, two people exchanged gunfire in the 600 block of SE 162nd Avenue. Both people got into separate cars and fled the scene. But the wounded man crashed into a nearby parked car.
