Gresham Police said they detained a 19-year-old man on Tuesday for allegedly chasing another driver and shooting at his car late last month. On June 25, shortly after midnight, an argument ensued over which motorist should have yielded in the McDonald’s drive-through line on East Burnside Street.
According to court documents, the victim began filming the driver of a white Ford Fusion after the driver cut in front of him. Police said –
“The victim reported that the driver of [the] white Ford Fusion chased him down and shot at him, striking his vehicle.”
Police obtained the suspect’s license plate number from the video and identified him as 19-year-old Gresham resident Matteo Greene. On July 3, Gresham Police discovered Greene’s vehicle in the 1600 block of SE 190th Avenue and arrested him.
Do you know that, according to a recent poll of field staff from nine state agencies, essential personnel overseeing Oregon’s natural resources have faced death threats, attack dogs, and firearms? Last year, two employees of the Department of State Lands tasked with protecting wetland habitats on the Oregon Coast escaped a terrifying site visit:
A probable cause document states that Greene “ultimately admitted that he had fired a gun at the [Dodge] Charger.” On Tuesday morning (July 4), investigators investigated Greene’s residence and discovered eleven firearms and over one thousand rounds of ammo.
Greene was booked into the Multnomah County Jail for attempted first-degree assault, unlawful weapon possession, and unlawful use of a weapon.
