25-year-old Jemaell Diamond Dominique Riley was released from a Portland hospital this afternoon and was booked into the Multnomah County Jail this evening on multiple felony charges.

Riley has been charged with Attempted Kidnapping in the First Degree, Conspiracy to Commit Kidnapping in the First Degree, Attempted Robbery in the Second Degree, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery in the First Degree, and two counts of Burglary in the First Degree.

20-year-old Steven Alan Young, already in jail on a charge of Burglary in the First Degree, will face additional charges of Attempted Kidnapping in the First Degree, Conspiracy to Commit Kidnapping in the First Degree, Attempted Robbery in the Second Degree, and Conspiracy to Commit Robbery in the First Degree.

Both Young and Riley will be arraigned in Multnomah County Court on Friday April 18, 2014.

20-year-old Paul Alan Ropp will face charges after he is released from a Portland hospital, expected to be within a few days. He is under 24 hour guard by Portland Police Officers at the hospital.

During this investigation, detectives have learned that the three suspects have been involved in an active, ongoing crime spree leading up to Wednesday's shooting. This crime spree over the past several weeks includes but is not limited to incidents of robbery and burglary.

Detectives are continuing to follow every lead and still have an active, ongoing investigation.

Detectives believe that the suspects' white Chevy Suburban that was crashed on Wednesday may have been used in the commission of other crimes.

Anyone with information about the suspects' criminal activity in the past several weeks is asked to contact Detective Anthony Merrill at (503) 823-4033 or anthony.merrill@portlandoregon.gov.
