PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Officers arrested a man Wednesday in connection with a shooting in the parking lot of a SE Portland lounge earlier this month.

According to police, officers responded to the report of gunshots being fired in the parking lot of the Fortune Star Lounge, located at 15920 SE Division Street, on May 10 around 12:34 a.m.

Officers arrived in the area and contacted several people who had been standing outside the lounge at the time of the shooting.

Police said no one was hit by the gunfire and witnesses provided information to officers that assisted in the investigation. Investigators learned that the suspect fired multiple rounds from his vehicle then sped out of the area.

The following day, May 11, authorities said they found the suspect’s vehicle. Detectives then conducted a follow-up investigation, which led to the identification of 31-year-old Michael Stockton as the suspect in the shooting.

Stockton was arrested at his place of employment without incident on Wednesday and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on numerous counts including two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.

Police said although a suspect has been arrested, the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Det. Arjay Dran at 503.823.0483 or arjay.dran@portlandoregon.gov.
