Suspect Identified In Portland Domestic Assault

Police have identified the suspect accused of firing his rifle in a domestic assault in Southeast Portland Sunday evening.

When officers arrived to a home on Southeast 118th Avenue near Raymond Street shortly after 5:00 p.m., the victim of the domestic violence assault told police 42-year-old Jason Wicker hit the victim several times with the butt of a rifle.

During the investigation officers learned Wicker was still inside the home, armed with several guns. 

As officers continued to speak with the victim and witnesses, Wicker walked out of the home. Officers believe Wicker then fired a gun.

After hearing the gunfire, investigating officers requested additional cover officers respond to the location to assist with the incident and evacuation of nearby residences. 

Police say as more officers responded, Wicker ran towards them. He was ultimately taken into custody. 

Wicker was then transported to a hospital for assessment. 

The victim of the domestic violence assault was treated on scene.

There are no known injuries as a result of Wicker firing a gun.

Wicker is facing two counts of Domestic Violence Menacing, Domestic Violence Assault in the Fourth Degree, and two counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
