Teen Arrested After Shots Fired in Front of Ore. Police Station

March 16, 2015  | 

A 16-year-old boy is accused of firing at a rival gang member in front of the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct, reports the Oregonian.

Dontae Eugene Mathis Jr. faces charges of attempted murder, attempted first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon, said Sgt. Peter Simpson, a police spokesman. He was taken to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center.

He is accused of firing at another teenager, but no one was injured, Simpson said. Officers followed the teen and took him into custody. He had ditched the gun, Simpson said, but police found it.

Officers discovered that a bullet apparently struck the front of the precinct.
