Woman in January Kenton Neighborhood Shooting Arrested, Charged with Attempted Murder (Photo)

A woman is facing attempted murder charges after an injury shooting in the Kenton Neighborhood last month.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2024, just before 6:40 p.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to a shooting call in the 7600 Block of North Interstate Avenue. Officers arrived to find a man suffering from a serious gunshot wound to his leg. Officers quickly applied a tourniquet to the man’s leg, which appeared to be severely damaged, and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The suspect fled the scene before officers were called.

Officers learned from the victim that the shooter was a woman he had previously dated. Due to the past relationship between the victim and suspect, Portland’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) responded to the scene and assumed control of the investigation. On January 31, 2024, SVU applied for and was granted a warrant to arrest 62-year-old Annette Oliver on charges of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, Assault in the First Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon (2 counts).

Today, February 16, 2024, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force located and arrested Oliver in the City of Gresham, Oregon. She has been booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on the warrant. After Oliver’s arrest, SVU successfully located the gun used in the shooting (photo).

Anyone who believes they have information about the case and have not yet spoken with police is asked to email Detective Caroline Greulich at caroline.greulich@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference Case #24-12720.
