PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police said they've arrested a man who shot and killed a person at a WinCo Foods grocery store in Northeast Portland Wednesday night. 

Blake M. Daniels, 38, was arrested at a motel on Northeast Sandy Boulevard near Interstate 205 shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday, the Portland Police Bureau said in a news release. 

The night before, Daniels allegedly shot and killed Jay Underwood, 60, at the WinCo near the corner of Northeast 122nd Avenue and San Rafael Street. Portland police officers responded at 9:56 p.m. and found Underwood dead inside the store. The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide. 

Moments after the shooting, police say Daniels stole a car at gunpoint in the store parking lot and left the scene. The victim of the carjacking was not hurt. 

Daniels was booked at the Multnomah County jail on charges of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and unlawful use of a firearm. 

The stolen car, a dark green 2003 Subaru Forester with a light bar on the roof, is still missing. The car had Oregon plate 605JWW. If found, police say to call 911 so an officer can respond.
