PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A fourth person is in custody in connection with a shooting that injured two teens last weekend outside a 7-11 convenience store in Southeast Portland.

Jason Workman, 34, was taken into custody Wednesday on two counts each of attempted murder and second-degree assault, along with one count of unlawful use of a weapon.

On Saturday evening, 18-year-old Mykehail Mars and 17-year-old Januel Zermeno were injured in a shooting at Southeast 82nd Avenue and Powell Boulevard.

Portland police officers responded to a report that multiple shots had been fired, scattering a crowd.

Later that night, Gang Enforcement Team detectives arrested 26-year-old Jillian Ann Kay and 38-year-old Bryan Curtis Whitecloud in the area of Southeast 84th Avenue and Brooklyn Street, and recovered a handgun nearby.

An unidentified 17-year-old female who was associated with the victims was also taken into custody after officers found a handgun in her jacket, Portland police said.

Zermeno was shot in the right leg, and Mars sustained a left hand wound. Both survived.

Kay and Whitecloud were charged with attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder and assault.

The three adult suspects remain lodged in the Multnomah County Jail. Workman was expected to be arraigned Thursday.
