PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A 22-year-old man in custody pending federal charges is now charged in state court with connection to a shooting that happened in SE Portland in June.

Michael Devon Herring, 22, is being held at the Multnomah County Inverness Jail. In federal court, Herring is charged with one count each of being a felon in possession of a firearm and being a felon in possession of ammunition. Herring is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday morning.

In early August, a Multnomah County grand jury indicted Herring with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of attempted first-degree assault.

The indictment stems from a shooting that occurred June 29 at Southeast 122nd and Powell Blvd. Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired. When police got on scene, they found evidence of gunfire, including a damaged vehicle. Several witnesses reported hearing gunfire then hearing vehicles speed away. The witnesses also reported seeing several males run from the area and from the damaged vehicle.

No one was injured during the shooting. Officers with the city’s Gang Enforcement Team responded and investigated the incident.

His federal trial is scheduled for Nov. 15, 2016.
