PORTLAND, Oregon - Cory James Jackson was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on Wednesday afternoon on charges of Kidnap in the First Degree (Domestic Violence), Coercion (Domestic Violence), Menacing (Domestic Violence), Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Attempt to Elude by Vehicle, and Identity Theft. Additionally, Jackson was lodged on several outstanding warrants.

On Wednesday May 18, 2016, at 9:00 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the are of I-5 southbound and North Victory Boulevard to assist the Washington State Patrol in the pursuit of a stolen car driven by a suspect involved in some kind of shooting.

Officers located the stolen vehicle parked in the 8900 block of North Vancouver Way but the suspect had already fled the area on foot. Officers searching the area did not locate the suspect, 35-year-old Cory James Jackson.

Detectives learned that Jackson may have had a room at the Viking Motel, located at 6701 North Interstate Avenue, so they responded to the area and established surveillance. Detectives watched Jackson return to the motel and go into a room alone.

Due to information that Jackson was potentially armed with a gun, the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) were called to assist in making an arrest.

At approximately 1:15 p.m., Jackson came out of the motel room and surrendered peacefully to SERT officers.

Detectives are continuing to investigate incidents involving Jackson and he will be booked into the Multnomah County Jail at a later time, charges to be determined.

Interstate Avenue was closed for approximately 1 hour during the tactical response.
