PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man is in custody after allegedly shooting a stranger in a Sellwood 7-Eleven parking lot early in the morning on Thursday, October 19.
Portland police said the man was shot by a man driving a burgundy four door sedan. The suspect was parked in the lot at 1715 SE Tacoma Street when he allegedly shot the victim. Police said the shooter took off but hit a tree on his way out, causing damage to the sedan.
Surveillance video from the scene helped authorities track down the alleged shooter, a 20-year-old previously charged for setting fires at Cleveland High School.
Devyn M. Julkowski was arrested Saturday morning and lodged at Multnomah County Jail for first degree assault and felon in possession of a firearm.
The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital.
Police don’t believe Julkowski knows the victim.
“It sounds as though the 2 came into contact with each other in the 7-Eleven parking lot,” Sgt. Chris Burley said. “For some reason the 2 started arguing and during the argument the victim was shot by Julkowski.”
Julkowski was convicted of arson in May and sentenced to 2 years probation and to participate in an alcohol evaluation and to apologize to Cleveland High School.
