Arrest in MAX shooting — Police have made an arrest in a shooting on a Portland-area light rail train platform. Police said Sunday Dawud Bryant, 21, faces charges of attempted murder and assault in the Friday shooting in Gresham. Bryant and the victim made eye contact on the train but did not speak. Police say Bryant shouted at the man and hit him on the head with a pistol after they got off the train. Authorities say he then fired one round at the victim, nearly hitting him. The bullet passed through the multiple layers of clothing of the victim’s girlfriend. Bryant was found a short while later by officers. He had dislocated his shoulder while fleeing.
Llama death called a probable wolf kill — Oregon wildlife officials say a 250-pound llama killed in Union County was probably attacked by a wolf, but the agency isn’t certain. The landowner found the llama dead with wounds to its right rear leg Nov. 24. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife investigators found that while a wolf kill is likely, the wounds could have been caused by another predator. The same landowner also reported another dead llama earlier in the month, which had been largely consumed except for its neck, head and left shoulder. ODFW determined there was no evidence of a predator attack at the scene. The cause of death is unknown. Ranchers are increasingly frustrated as wolf numbers rise in Oregon. State wildlife officials are updating Oregon’s wolf management policy.
