Police ID teen tackled after bringing gun to Parkrose HS


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police have released the identity of an 18-year-old student who was tackled after reportedly bringing a gun into a classroom at a Portland high school.

The Portland Police Bureau said Saturday that Angel Granados Dias had been booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on suspicion of possessing a firearm in a public building, attempting to shoot a gun at a school and reckless endangerment.

Authorities say he is a student at Parkrose High School, where he brought the shotgun Friday.

A football and track coach at the school, Keanon Lowe, was credited with tackling the student before anyone was injured. Lowe is a former football standout at the University of Oregon.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the student had a lawyer. Police said they were working with the bureau’s behavioral health unit.
