After a “Suspicious-with Weapon” call was received on August 9 at 12:19 p.m., six Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct officers were dispatched to the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue of Roses and Ash Street.

Within minutes, more offices, including those with the PPB’s Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), began to flood the area.

Officers track the suspect to this intersection in Montavilla.

It added up to 35 officers, including the PPB Mobile Command Unit, two SERT armored vehicles, the SERT Support Vehicle, and many of marked and unmarked police vehicles – all lined and parked in the middle of SE Washington Street, from 76th to 82nd Avenues.

In their armored vehicles, SERT officers track the man who’d been seen packing a pistol in the neighborhood.

Watch as Portland Police Bureau SERT officers make a plan to arrest the man, seen with a gun:

At first, their focus was along SE 81st Avenue near Ash Street.

However – officers tracked the person south four blocks, to Washington Street – and cornered him just south of the Milwaukie Lumber store.

Overwhelmed by the large number of officers, the suspect peacefully surrenders.

In handcuffs, the suspect talks with a Parole and Probation Officer.

The suspect is placed in the back of a patrol car.

PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Kevin Allen explained why the massive turnout. “The subject was seen with a gun – and ran from officers. “As a precaution, residents in a few blocks were asked to shelter in place.

This is the pistol confiscated from the suspect.

“The suspect was quickly located and convinced to surrender,” Sergeant Allen continued. “SERT and Crisis Negotiation Team officers responded to assist getting him into custody. There were no injuries.” A gun was recovered as evidence.

28-year-old Napoleon Nathanielle Carter was the man arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC), at 3:03 p.m., on the Class C Felony of Felon in Possession of a Firearm; Felony Parole Violation, plus a Misdemeanor charge of Interfering with a Peace Officer.

At his arraignment, Carter learned that he was being held without bail for the time being, at the MCDC.
