PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who fired several shots at three women in a Southeast Portland parking lot on Friday has been charged with attempted murder, according to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
Renardo Artez Mitchell, 35, faces three counts of attempted murder with a firearm, one count of felon in possession of a firearm and one of burglary constituting domestic violence, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.
Mitchell had previously been in a relationship with one of the women. According to police, the women had been in an apartment when one of them got a text from Mitchell, leading them to leave.
As they were leaving the building, police said Mitchell sped in to the parking lot and started shooting toward the women. None of the women were hurt, but the shooting damaged occupied apartments. Mitchell drove away, but when the women went back to the apartment where one of them lives, they found the door kicked in and property inside damaged.
It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.
