On Saturday, May 29, 2021, at 7:36 p.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a disturbance with a weapon in the 2800 block of SW 214th Avenue in the community of Aloha.

Deputies learned that two men were arguing in an apartment where others were present. During the argument, one male produced a handgun and pointed it at the other occupants of the apartment. One resident was able to escape to a neighbor's apartment. A gunshot was then heard. The two males who had been arguing both left the scene prior to the arrival of the deputies.

The investigation also revealed that at the time of the shooting, a male had been napping on a couch inside the apartment. The bullet came within three feet of striking the male. Fortunately, no one was injured. Ballistic evidence was recovered from the location, but no firearm was found.

Today, while following up on the investigation, deputies were able to identify the shooter as Eddy F. Alvizures, 30, of Hillsboro. Deputies spotted Mr. Alvizures in the area of SW 187th Avenue and SW TV Highway. Patrol deputies and members of the Washington County Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) and Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) took him into custody. A loaded firearm was found in his possession and is believed to be the weapon involved in yesterday's shooting. The investigation is ongoing.

Mr. Alvizures was lodged at the Washington County Jail on the following charges:

  • Unlawful Use of a Weapon
  • Menacing
  • Felon in Possession of a Firearm
  • Recklessly Endangering Another Person

He is currently being held without bail.

The Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) is an interagency, highly skilled, and well-equipped tactical unit that responds to extremely hazardous situations where conventional police tactics and equipment may be inadequate. Also known as SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), TNT is made up of Sheriff's Office deputies and police officers from other departments in Washington County.
