Premiere postponed

Don't go rushing to theaters Friday to see the long-awaited release of 'The Hunted,' the big-studio production filmed last year at several Portland area locations.

Paramount Pictures had set a release date of last fall, then moved it to Friday. Now the date has been pushed to March 14.

The thriller stars Benicio Del Toro and Tommy Lee Jones. The film's trailer reveals glimpses of Del Toro jumping from a makeshift MAX train from the Hawthorne Bridge as well as Portland police officers and FBI agents acting as extras.

An invitation-only premiere screening in Portland is scheduled for March 13.


Man held in cabby's death

The man police say killed a Portland cab driver last week was arrested Sunday evening about three miles from where the crime took place.

Portland police arrested 62-year-old Stephen Warren Barr at the Daily Double Inn, 1607 N.E. 162nd Ave., without incident. He is charged with aggravated murder in the Feb. 16 shooting death of Grigoriy Rogozhnikov, a Broadway Cab driver.

Police on Friday had issued a warrant for Barr, saying he was armed and dangerous and likely to be driving a car that was stolen from 11751 E. Burnside St., two blocks from where the cab was found. That car was recovered Sunday evening outside the tavern where Barr was arrested.

Hours after his cab was located Feb. 16, Rogozhnikov was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head at East Burnside Street and Northeast 120th Avenue. A motive for the shooting was not confirmed.

Citizens may contribute to a fund for the victim's family at any US Bank branch.
