Tigard man arrested for murder of Beaverton father

Orlando PounceyThe U.S. Marshals Office has arrested a Tigard man wanted in connection with a murder outside a condominium on Southwest Canterbury Lane last in late January.

Orlando Lee Pouncey, 29, was arrested at about 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9 in Spanaway, Wash., a small town about the size of Sherwood south of Tacoma.

Pouncey was apprehended by the U.S. Marshals Pacific NW Violent Offender Task Force and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, according to Jim Wolf, a spokesman with the Tigard Police Department.

Pouncey was wanted in connection with the Jan. 30 shooting death of Jerry Duy Nguyen of Beaverton.

Nguyen had gone to his ex-wife's home in the 10700 block of Southwest Canterbury Lane to pick up his son when he was shot multiple times by Pouncey, police allege.

Pouncey was located at a family member’s home in the 100 block of 163rd Street South in Spanaway, Wolf said. He was arrested without incident and lodged in the Pierce County Jail in Tacoma.

Tigard Police coordinated with the Marshals Task Force to assist with the arrest, Wolf said. The Marshals Task Force is comprised of U.S. Marshals Service investigators from Alaska, Oregon and Washington.

Wolf said that it is not known when Pouncey will be returned to Oregon.

Pouncey has been on the run since the shooting. He was last seen fleeing the scene at about 5:45 p.m. after the shots were fired.

Last week, a Washington County grand jury indicted Pouncey on charges of murder, unlawful use of a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Pouncey is the boyfriend of Nguyen's ex-wife and lives in the Mapletree Apartments on Southwest Canterbury Lane.

No motive has been released for the shooting.

Last week, Crime Stoppers of Oregon offered a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that lead to an arrest.
