A search is underway in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood for a suspect who is wanted and is believed to be armed, prompting a callout of the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT).

On Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 3:20 p.m., a Portland Police Bureau sergeant from the East Precinct attempted to stop a vehicle in the 5700 block of Southeast 128th Avenue. The sergeant knew the driver to be a wanted suspect. The suspect eluded officers to the area of Southeast 136th and Southeast Ramona Street where the suspect stopped the car and ran off. Evidence recovered at the car left officers to believe that the subject may be armed.

Officers have set up a perimeter and activated SERT and CNT. At this point the perimeter includes Southeast 134th Avenue to Southeast 140th Avenue, Southeast Ramona Street to the Springwater Trail. The PIO is responding to the scene. Additional information will be shared when available.
