Three suspect arrested in gang-related shooting

August 12, 2004 00:00


On August 11, 2004, a Multnomah County Grand Jury indicted 20-year-old Kentrell A. Tillman, 21-year-old Christopher J. Rainier, and 19-year-old Mario L. Neal on two counts of Attempted Aggravated Murder, two counts of Attempted Murder, Assault in the First Degree, Attempted Assault in the First Degree, Two counts of Assault in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon in connection with the gang-related shooting of 21-year-old Joseph J. Mills and 17-year-old Anthony D. Bell on July 29, 2004.

On July 29, 2004, at 7:23 p.m., Portland Police responded to a “shots fired” call near the intersection of North Haight Avenue and North Failing Street. A short time, later Mills and Bell arrived at Emanuel Hospital with gunshot wounds to the lower back area. The Gang Enforcement Team and The Youth Gun Anti-Violence Task Force initiated an investigation and arrested all three suspects.

The Portland Police Bureau’s Tactical Operations Division continues to aggressively investigate all gang-related shootings. Anyone with information about this investigation, or any other gang-related shooting, is asked to call the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operations Division at (503) 823-4106.
