15 year old arrested for attempted murder

September 12, 2003 00:00

  

On Wednesday, September 10, 2003, at 6:30 p.m., Portland Police Officers arrested 15-year-old Rafael Keith Hall on one count of Attempted Murder while conducting a traffic stop near the intersection of Southeast 96th Avenue and Southeast Market Street. The investigation began on September 6, 2003, at 12:20 a.m., when officers discovered 18-year-old John Hunt in an alley, near the intersection of North Killingsworth Street and North Haight Avenue, while responding to a call of "shots fired." Hunt had been shot and was severely wounded. The shooting appeared to be gang-related.

Homicide Detectives initiated an investigation and developed Probable Cause to arrest Hall. A Multnomah County Grand Jury has now indicted Hall on one count of Attempted Murder. Attempted Murder is a Measure 11 crime.

Homicide Detectives continue to look for additional witnesses in this investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Rhodes at (503) 823-0459 or Detective Snyder at (503) 823-0842.

A photograph of Hall is available, via e-mail, from the Portland Police Bureau Identification Division at (503) 823-0382.

This investigation is continuing.
