He was transported to the hospital by ambulance, treated, and released into police custody. Officers also arrested Steven M. Robinson, 43 (photo). He was not injured.

The gun, a .380 Sig Sauer semiautomatic handgun (photo), was seized as evidence. There were no other injuries or property damage as a result of the shots.

Both were booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center. Larson was charged with Possession of a Loaded Firearm in a Public Place (city code), Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Reckless Endangering, and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
