Police arrest man for murder

Gresham police have arrested a local man on allegations of murder.

Police and members of the East Multnomah County SWAT team arrested Miguel Ramirez-Carney, 25, of Troutdale on an allegation of murder at 4:40 a.m. while serving a warrant in Gresham in the 2900 block of Northeast 23rd Street, said Lt.

That’s less than a mile from where Shane Brumbaugh, 23, of Gresham was shot to death at his condominium in the 1400 block of Northeast Paropa Court at 6:42 p.m. Sunday, March 10.

Neighbors reported that the suspect arrived on foot. He fled the scene, along with another man who was serving as a lookout. Both men ran to a waiting vehicle that sped off after the shooting.

Brumbaugh died at the scene of a gunshot wound to his chest, after his live-in girlfriend and a neighbor tried to revive him with CPR.

The address was one of two that police served warrants at in hopes of making an arrest in the case, said Lt. Claudio Grandjean. The other warrant was served in Portland.

As for the relationship between the suspect and the victim, Grandjean could only say they knew each other. “It was not random,” he said.

The East County Major Crimes Team, comprised of detectives from Gresham, Multnomah County, Fairview and Troutdale, as well as the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, continues to investigate the case. Detectives say more arrests are possible.
