On September 4, 2001, Portland Police Offices responded to the 900 block of SE 162nd Avenue regarding a possible shooting. Officers arrived at the scene and discovered 27-year-old Creighton R. Walling, who had been shot multiple times in the upper torso. Paramedics arrived and transported Walling to OHSU, where he is still recovering.

Portland Police Homicide Detectives initiated an investigation, and on September 5, 2001, Detective Sergeant Kris Wagner interviewed and arrested 18-year-old Timothy M. Tynan. Tynan has been charges with Attempt Murder and Assault 1. Tynan also had a warrant for his arrest; his bail has been set at $500,000.
