PORTLAND, Ore. – Police in Washington arrested a Portland man who is accused of firing shots into a North Portland home during a gang-related shooting.

Teondre Bonner, 20, was arrested at a motel in Lacey, Wash. on Aug. 2 by the Thurston County SWAT team.

Police said Bonner was wanted in connection with a gang shooting on July 12 at a home at North Rosa Parks Way and Borthwick Ave. near Peninsula Park. Police said two men fired shots into the home and ran away.

No one inside the home was hurt.

Police said the suspects ran into the Peninsula Park Community Center before running away from the scene.

The community center was full of children attending a summer camp at the time. No one inside the building was hurt. Police and parks staff later worked to evacuate the building.

Portland Parks and Recreation spokesman Mark Ross said they will hire 14 more seasonal rangers, give summer playground staff two-way radios and install more security cameras at many community centers in the wake of the shooting.

Bonner faces attempted murder and unlawful use of a weapon charges. He was taken to the Thurston County Jail where he is waiting to be extradited to Oregon.
