Police hold Vancouver man in NE Portland shooting

March 18 incident apparently stemmed from personal dispute, not gang activity

Portland police have arrested a suspect in a March 18 Northeast Portland shooting that wounded a 27-year-old man.

At about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Portland police gang enforcement detectives arrested Theautry James Zeno, 26, in connection with the shooting of Izeah Williams near Northeast 107th Avenue and Fremont Street.

Zeno, a Vancouver, Wash., resident, was arrested near Southeast 202nd Avenue and Powell Boulevard in Gresham. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on one count of attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, being a felon in possession of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon.

Investigators recovered what they think is a handgun used in the shooting.

The detectives were assisted by the Portland Special Emergency Reaction Team, the Gun Task Force and Gresham police.

Although detectives originally investigated the shooting as gang-related, they now believe it stemmed from a personal dispute rather than gang activity.
