Police say a suspect was carrying a handgun and some crack cocaine when he was arrested Tuesday in connection with a suspected gang shooting on August 24 that wounded three men waiting to board the Portland Spirit river cruise ship.
Gang Enforcement Team detectives developed leads that led them to arrest 21-year-old Jajaun Latrell Yoakum as he was walking down a street. He was booked in to the Multnomah County Jail on attempted murder, assault and gun charges.
The shooting occurred in Waterfront Park where people were lined up to attend a private party on the Portland Spirit. Police say the party attracted a large number of gang members and associates.
