A woman is facing an attempted murder charge after an injury shooting in the Foster-Powell Neighborhood this afternoon.

On Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 4:25 p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to the 3500 Block of Southeast 79th Avenue on reports of a shooting. While they were enroute, officers learned that the victim, a 75-year-old man, was able to make his way to the lobby of a building, where he told witnesses that he had been shot by a woman who was fleeing the scene. Based on a description provided by the victim, officers located the woman attempting to drive away and safely took her into custody. The man was transported to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the face. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Detectives from the Portland Police Special Victims Unit responded and assumed the investigation. Investigators recovered the revolver believed to have been used in the crime (photo). Lana J. Strand, 73, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on the charge of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree (Domestic Violence) and Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Domestic Violence). She is believed to be the spouse or former spouse of the victim.

Anyone who believes they have information about the case and have not yet spoken with police is asked to e-mail Detective Caroline Greulich at caroline.greulich@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference Case #24-44215.
