Portland Police Bureau Hostage Negotiators and the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) were dispatch to the area to assist Southeast Percent officers. Officers evacuated the neighboring homes while hostage negotiators continued to speak with Hunter. During the negotiation, it became clear that the female who had originally called 911 was still alive. At 10:40 p.m., Hunter agreed to surrender to the SERT. After Hunter was taken into custody, SERT entered the home and rescued, Alona Feather, who was believed to be approximately 40 years of age, but there is conflicting information regarding her exact date of birth. Feather was transported to OHSU.
Hunter was interviewed and booked at the Multnomah County Detention Center; he was charged with Attempted Murder and Assault in the First Degree. Hunter will be arraigned on Friday, October 5, at 2 p.m.
A photograph of Hunter is available from the Portland Police Bureau’s Identification Division.
