Loud Party Leads To Shooting

A Portland man shot an intruder Sunday after he was allegedly attacked by several neighbors.

A party was going on Sunday evening near Southeast 72nd and Tenino. Witnesses say the 76-year-old man asked his neighbors to keep the noise down. Three or four men from the party then went to the man's home.

"I seen people attacking an old man. It was unfair. Three or four men on one old man, kicking down his door and throwing bottles at his window," witness Terrie Arango told KOIN 6 News.

Police say he fired his gun, hitting 29-year-old Temujin Herrera in the hand. The victim was able to get the gun away from the shooter.

Portland police say Monday morning that the man, whose name was not released, fired his gun in self defense.

Herrera was arrested on assault, attempted burglary and criminal mischief charges. Valentin Cuatol Herrera, 27, was also arrested on assault, attempted burglary and criminal mischief charges

The investigation continued.
