PORTLAND, Ore. - A young man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in the parking lot of a Plaid Pantry store.

Shots were fired around 4:15 p.m. on Sept. 16. outside the Plaid Pantry at 8110 N.E. Fremont Street.

When police arrived, they learned that two groups were in the parking lot and that at some point, shots had been fired. No one was hurt, but bullets did end up hitting the Plaid Pantry store.

On Dec. 16, someone called 9-1-1 from a hotel in the 400 block of Northeast Wasco Street but hung up. Police ended up arresting 18-year-old Fernando Rojas-Salazar in connection with that call (no further details were released). Investigators also believed he was involved in the shooting outside the Plaid Pantry.

Rojas-Salazar is now facing charges of fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and attempted murder.
