PORTLAND, Ore. — A driver has been charged with second-degree murder in a fatal hit-and-run Monday night in Southeast Portland's Foster-Powell neighborhood, according to police.
Frederick Deatric Moore, 40, was arrested Tuesday morning and booked at the Multnomah County Detention Center, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) said in a news release.
At about 9:05 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of Southeast 82nd Avenue and Center Street by the Eastport Plaza shopping center where a pedestrian was struck and killed, police said.
