HAPPY VALLEY, Ore. -- The suspect in a fatal shooting Sunday night near Happy Valley has been captured.

Jason Duane Hogan Jr., 33, allegedly shot his girlfriend and her mother, then fled in a stolen car. His photo was circulated by the media and police were alerted that a man who looked like him was seen getting off a TriMet bus at SW 185th and Tualatin-Valley Highway, according to the Washington County sheriff's office.

Then, late Tuesday morning, officers swarmed the Beaverton Transit Center and captured Hogan. Police said he was armed and officers recovered the gun.

Police had warned that Hogan was very unpredictable and should not be approached.

Norma Jean Perrone, 62, died. Gina Marie Perrone, 29, survived the gunfire, Phillips said. Hogan was Gina's boyfriend and had a child with her. They all lived together at the home where the shooting occurred, according to investigators.

Gina called 911 for help just before 11 p.m.  She told dispatchers Hogan had shot her and her mother in their home on SE Hobart Court. Moments later, dispatchers got calls from neighbors about hearing gunfire.

Both women were taken to the hospital but Norma did not survive.

The suspect sped off sometime during the night, in a car police said he stole from an acquaintance.

Hogan has an extensive criminal record including assaults, kidnapping charges, and a SWAT incident. He has also been shot, Phillips said.

He likely will fear no one and will be violent in any confrontation, said Sgt. Adam Phillips with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Police are also trying to locate two vehicles they believe were somehow involved in Hogan's escape. The first a silver 2002 VW Golf 924DQG and a dark blue Hyundai Elantra 161DMT. The Hyundai has damage to the hood.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's confidential Tip Line at 503-723-4949.
