Two women killed, Portland driver arrested in I-5 crash early Saturday

Two women whose SUV broke down on Interstate 5 near Portland’s Fremont Bridge were killed in the wee hours Saturday morning by a driver police say was intoxicated.

Police arrested a 25-year-old Portland man, Michael A. Hanson, and charged him with two counts of criminally negligent homicide and driving under the influence of intoxicants.

The two women are Portland’s 41st and 42nd traffic-related deaths this year, according to police.

Police say the women’s SUV broke down on the freeway’s right shoulder at the point where the southbound freeway splits between Interstate 5 and Interstate 405. Another vehicle stopped to help and, as the women crossed the freeway to reach that vehicle, police say Hanson struck them in a 2016 Ford Fusion.

A third pedestrian was not injured, according to police, who are withholding the victims’ identities until their families have been notified.

Portland police closed the freeway from around 2:20

‘I will never be OK:’ Mother of Euclid fashion model killed in shooting grieves second child lost to gun violence

EUCLID, Ohio — Shalaymiah Moore died Oct. 2 when a gunman shot and killed her. The headlines that followed her death focused on her burgeoning career as a fashion model.

In a recent conversation with Moore’s mother, she said she would like her daughter’s memory to consist of more than just “model” or “actress.” She was a mother, a daughter, a nurse’s assistant, a friend to many and someone who battled depression.

“She had gone through a long history of depression thinking she was not adequate enough to be a mother,” Moore’s mother Rochelle Moore said. “She had finally found her niche in life.”

Shalaymiah Moore died from several gunshot wounds to the back and shoulder in an incident that happened about 3:15 a.m. Friday on Lakeshore Boulevard just west of East 210th Street, according to Euclid police. Paramedics took her to University Hospitals, where she later died.

After 6-year-old killed execution-style, Michigan police may ask feds to seek death penalty

WARREN, MI — Police say a 6-year-old boy was killed execution-style during a double homicide at a home in Warren Thursday, and if the suspect is found, they may seek the death penalty through federal assistance. Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer made the announcement during a press conference Friday.

“If we bring the federal authorities in, we may be asking for the death penalty for the person or persons responsible. I’m not saying we are at this point,” Dwyer said.

The death penalty has been outlawed in Michigan since 1963. However, if the case moves to a federal level, it would open the door for a possible death penalty sentence.

“When you murder a 6-year-old innocent baby, the person or persons responsible deserve the death penalty,” Dwyer said.

The boy has been identified as Tai’raz Moore. He was found in the home in the 2000 block of Otis Avenue near
