slides: UPDATED: Portland Police Make Arrest in High School Shooting Case

Saturday, December 13, 2014

 

Portland Gang Unit officers have arrested 22-year-old Lonzo Murphy in connection to the shooting at Rosemary Anderson High School Dec. 12, according to Police.

Officers found a handgun after initiating a traffic stop at N Interstate Ave. and Going Street at approximately 1:30 a.m. Dec. 13.

As part of an investigation into the man's arrest, a SERT team carried out a search warrant at approximately at 2 a.m. on an apartment approximately five blocks away from the scene of the shooting.

Murphy was booked into Multnomah County jail for a parole violation. Additional charges are still pending, police stated.

Shortly after 12:10 p.m. Dec. 12, four students were wounded after a shooter opened fire outside Rosemary Anderson High School, on North Killingsworth Ct., and then fled on foot, police said.

The four victims were a 16-year-old female, in critical condition, a 17 and a 20-year-old male, both in serious condition, and 19-year-old female who was grazed in the foot. All the victims were either students or affiliated with the school, police said.

“We don’t know what lead up to the shooting,” said Sgt. Peter Simpson of the Portland police. “We know there was a dispute that happened at the corner of North Killingsworth Ct and Borthwick Avenue.”

The shooter was described as a African American male in his twenties, accompanied by two other African American males.

Police gang enforcement was involved with the investigation. Simpson said the police responded to the scene as if it was an active shooter situation, like the one at Reynolds High School in June of this year.

“We believed it was an active shooter,” Simpson said. “But the shooter never entered the school and left the area very quickly.”

Olivianne Danley, 16, is a student at Rosemary, she said she was leaving school when the shots were fired.

“I was about to leave and saw everyone running back inside,” Danley said. “There were people calling their parents and freaking out.”

Simpson said they were investigation if the shooter had gang affiliations.  He said that he had seen similar incidents to the one at Rosemary during his days on the gang enforcement team.

“We often see when there is a dispute between two people, other people get hit,” Simpson said.  He said during his previous investigations he was always struck by “the disregard for human life.“
