Police tracked down 21-year-old Jajuan Latrell Yoakum Tuesday, and said they found a gun and crack cocaine on him.

He appeared in court Wednesday — facing three counts of Attempted Murder.

He’s accused of opening fire near a line of people waiting to board the Portland Spirit. Three people were hurt.

Police said the people shot were part of a private party that attracted a number of gang members. They’re still looking for two more unidentified suspects.
