Police on Tuesday arrested a convicted murderer on suspicion of killing an unidentified pedestrian in a crash Monday in Southeast Portland.
Investigators arrested Portland resident Frederick D. Moore, 40, on allegations of second-degree murder and hit-and-run in the fatal crash on Southeast 82nd Avenue near Center Street.
The pedestrian died at the scene about 9 p.m. Monday. A spokesperson for the Portland Police Bureau declined to release further information about the crash or the arrest.
Moore was convicted in 1998 of second-degree murder and first-degree robbery after he and three other teenagers killed Anthony Genzale in South Everett, Washington, during a stick-up that netted $60 and a gun, according to The Seattle Times.
Moore, who was 16 at the time, received a sentence of 17 years after testifying against a ringleader and explaining he didn’t pull the trigger, the newspaper reported.
In 2020, Moore was sentenced to 90 days in jail in Portland for breaking into a stranger’s East Burnside home and trashing it, court records show.
Moore is being held in Multnomah County’s downtown jail and is set to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon.
