On November 7, 2022, at 8:51 a.m., East Precinct Officers were dispatched, along with Portland Fire & Rescue, on the report of a man setting a vehicle on fire in the 2000 Block of Southeast 83rd Avenue. Officers located and confronted the suspect, who was armed. During the confrontation, officers fired shots, striking him. The suspect remained uncooperative, prompting supervisors to activate Portland's Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT). The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Antoine Young, was taken into custody and is being treated for his injuries at a local hospital. The involved officers were Officer Erik Daniels, a 23-year veteran of PPB, Officer Joshua Howery, a 21-year veteran of PPB, and Officer Mark Piombo, a 16-year veteran of PPB.
The burning vehicle became fully engulfed in flames, but eventually burned itself out.
Young was released from the hospital on November 13, 2022, and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on an Outstanding Warrant and Parole Violation.
Per policy, Portland's Homicide Unit assumed control of this investigation. The investigation is continuing.
