On Thursday, February 20, 2020 at about 7:30 p.m., members of the Gun Violence Reduction Team, (GVRT) were proactively patrolling the area of Northeast 82nd Avenue and Northeast Killingsworth Street due to increased gun violence in this area. GVRT conducted a traffic stop at Northeast 87th Avenue and Northeast Sumner Street.

Once the vehicle was stopped two passengers jumped out of the vehicle and ran in opposite directions. The driver remained in the vehicle. One of the passengers that jumped out was detained by a GVRT officer after a short chase.

A perimeter was set up and a K9 was used to find the second passenger, Albert Goldsby, 19, who was found hiding behind a nearby resident's shed. GVRT officers re-tracked the path Goldsby took when eluding police and located a Glock 17 (Photo).

Goldsby (Photo) was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm in a Public Place, and Interfering with a Peace Officer.

The Gun Violence Reduction Team is continuing to investigate several incidents of gun violence citywide.
