Gresham officers don’t have to go far for arrest

After a shooting, Gresham police looked for 33-year-old Alan Bates for a month. Last week, they found him, walking in front of a police substation.

The Oregonian reports that Bates was accused of shooting a 25-year-old Gresham man in the neck on Sept. 4, and a warrant was issued.

On Saturday, a Gresham officer spotted Bates in front of the substation. Police said he fled, but a police dog chased and captured him.

Bates was booked on charges of attempted murder and violating parole.
