This morning 43-year-old Jahi K Moody was arrested in connection with a shooting that was reported on Saturday, November 4 2017.
This investigation started on November 4, 2017, at 1:03 p.m., when East precinct officers responded to multiple people calling 9-1-1 about gunfire in the area of the 11300 block Northeast Knott Street.
Officers arrived in the area and contacted several witnesses. The witnesses informed officers that two vehicles were speeding through the neighborhood. According to witnesses an occupant of one of the speeding cars shot at the other vehicle.
A search of the area was conducted and evidence of gunfire was located, including one home that was struck by gunfire. Shortly after officers responded to the scene and started the investigation, the person believed to be the intended target was contacted. While contacting the victim, officers located multiple bullet strikes to the victim's vehicle, but no one in the vehicle was injured.
Based on the preliminary investigation, the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Gang Enforcement Team (GET) responded to assist with the investigation. Detectives continued to investigate this shooting and believed Moody was a suspect in the shooting.
Early this morning the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) served a search warrant at a residence in the 11700 block of Northeast Street. As the warrant was being served, Moody was taken into custody. Investigators searched the location and located a handgun and other firearm related items.
Moody was lodged in the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Attempt Murder, Attempt Assault in the First Degree, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
