Multiagency Effort Nets Attempt Murder Arrests

September 20, 2004 00:00


Between September 3 and September 5, 2004, four shootings occurred within Portland's East and Northeast precincts. Nobody was injured during these shootings.

The investigation that followed, looking for evidence related to the shootings, lead to the service of eight search warrants in between about 10:00 pm September 17 and 2:00 am September 18. Of those warrants one was served in Gresham, one in Beaverton and six in Portland (1 in Southeast precinct, 5 in Northeast precinct).

Members of the Portland Police Gang Enforcement Team, Special Emergency Reaction Team, Youth Gun Anti-violence Task Force, Detective Division, Drugs and Vice Division, East Precinct Neighborhood Response Team, uniform officers from involved precincts, the Washington County Tactical Negotiation Team, and the Regional Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force, all participated in the investigation and warrant service.

Two arrests were made:

20-year-old D'Andre D. King was arrested for four counts of Attempted Aggravated Murder and four counts of Attempted Murder. He was lodged in the Multnomah County jail with an $800,000 bail.

26-year-old James Duckett was arrested on two misdemeanor driving while suspended warrants, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, four counts of Attempted Aggravated Murder, and four counts of Attempted Murder. He was lodged in the Multnomah County jail with an $805,000 bail.

Both suspects will be arraigned Monday at the Justice Center.

Five pistols were recovered, as well as about two ounces of crack cocaine.
