Police identify man they shot after he set fire to car in SE Portland

Portland police have identified the man they shot and injured in Southeast Portland last week as 33-year-old Antoine Young.

Young left the hospital Sunday, and police booked him at the Multnomah County Detention Center on an outstanding warrant and violating parole, Portland police said in a statement Monday.

Police and firefighters responded to calls reporting a man setting a car on fire in the 2000 block of Southeast 83rd at 8:52 a.m. Nov. 7. The caller said the car was in flames.

Police and firefighters later received reports that the man was throwing things and running in and out of traffic. East Precinct officers had “an altercation” after confronting the man and then fired at him. He fled the scene, but eventually surrendered just before 11 a.m.

Dispatchers reported to firefighters that the man was armed with a rifle. Portland police also said the man was armed, but did not identify a weapon.

Police have not identified the officers involved in the shooting. According to the bureau’s deadly force policy, they must identify officers who fire their weapons within 24 hours of a shooting, “absent a credible security threat.” The bureau said it wouldn’t release the names of the officers until a grand jury concludes their review of the incident, which could take months.

Young had an outstanding arrest warrant for third-degree theft in Washington County on Sept. 28, according to court documents. He’s been convicted of multiple felonies going back to 2006, with the most recent in March 2021 when he pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, according to court documents.
