Police arrested a 22-year-old man early Saturday morning in connection with the Friday afternoon shooting that wounded four people outside Rosemary Anderson High School.

Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau said the man was arrested in a car at North Interstate Avenue and Going Street at 1:30 a.m. A handgun was seized during the arrest.

At 2 a.m., Simpson said, members of the bureau’s special emergency response team served a search warrant at an apartment in the 200 block of North Killingsworth Street as part of the investigation.

The apartment is just 5 blocks from where the shooting took place just after noon Friday outside the alternative high school.

Simpson said the name of the man who was arrested will be released after he has been booked into the Justice Center Jail.
