PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Beaverton 19-year-old was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder on Friday morning while police still search for his older brother, who’s also wanted for the same crime.
Chase Bedford was arrested and also charged with two counts of kidnapping and first-degree assault, as well as the two attempted murder counts. All charges stem from an Oct. 4 incident. Police are looking for his 28-year-old brother, Cory. Police said Bedford should be considered armed and dangerous and not approached.
