The robbery suspect who was shot this morning, 30-year-old David Moore, was released from an area hospital and booked into the Multnomah County Jail for Robbery in the First Degree.

Moore will be arraigned on Thursday in Multnomah County Court.


Portland Police are releasing some additional information about the early morning robbery and shooting at the Mt. Scott Pub, located at 6001 Southeast 72nd Avenue.

The suspect entered the bar with a loaded sawed-off rifle and demanded money from the bartender. The bartender fled to the back room and suspect chased him then came back into the bar and opened the till and took money, then continued to threaten patrons with the rifle.

A second employee, 57-year-old Ormand "Stub" Fentress, retrieved a gun from the bar and as the suspect continued to threaten patrons with the loaded rifle, Fentress fired multiple shots at the suspect's lower body, hitting the suspect, causing the suspect to fall to the ground.

Fentress then held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived. The suspect was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The robbery suspect, who has not yet been charged or arrested and is still in the hospital, is 30-year-old male. His name will be released when he is arrested and booked into jail.

The employees of the Mt. Scott Pub are cooperating with Robbery investigators.
