How did we get to 169 weeks of “Shooting Reports”? CLICK HERE to find out.

A Saturday night shooting that took place on S.E. Ellis Street, just off 82nd Avenue of Roses, on Saturday evening, September 9, at the edge of the Mt. Scott Arleta neighborhood, ended up with a suspect being taken custody across the street, in Lents.

Watch as officers come together, just after a shooting suspect is taken into custody.

As Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers were alerted to this “shooting” call at 7:35 p.m. that evening eight officers responded immediately.

“An East Precinct Sergeant arrested the suspect a couple blocks away,” later reported PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Kevin Allen.

Officers compare findings and evidence located at this shooting.

Specifically, both District Officers and members of the Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) located the suspect just south of S.E. Foster Road on 83rd Avenue.

An ambulance pulled up, and paramedics medically evaluated the shooting victim. “The victim was struck in his backpack, but [it stopped the bullet and he] was not injured,” Sergeant Allen told East Portland News. “A gun and drugs were seized from the suspect.”

Arrested was 37-year-old Igor Viktorovich Kashul, who was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) in downtown Portland at 9:29 p.m. that evening on Felony charges of Attempted Assault in the First Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

This gun, ammo and drugs were found in the suspect’s backpack, officials say.

At his arraignment, a judge dismissed the Attempted Assault in the First Degree charge; but, a representative of the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office successfully added a charge of Attempted Murder in the Second degree, which is a Class A Felony. As a result, Kashul is now being held, without bail, in Inverness Jail.

If you have information about this crime, email it to, and mark it to the attention of ECST, and refer to Case No. 23-238068.
