Arrest in East Portland for firing a gun near a bar

MULTNOMAH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - Tyi Anthony SteffinsOn Saturday October 10, 2015, at 12:14 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a man shooting a gun outside the Powellhurst Tavern, located at 12344 Southeast Powell Boulevard.

Officers arrived in the area and learned that the suspect was in the bed of a pick-up truck that pulled out of the parking lot. The truck was stopped by police and the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect was initially non-compliant so officers, concerned that the suspect was still armed with a gun, deployed rounds from a less lethal shotgun. The suspect eventually complied and was taken into custody. After receiving medical treatment the suspect was taken to jail. A handgun was located and seized as evidence from a different vehicle.

27-year-old Tyi Anthony Steffins was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Possession of a Loaded Firearm, Discharge a Firearm in the City and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
