Man in Native American headdress stops gunman on Portland train

Portland, Ore. – Portland police said a dispute broke out between two men on Portland MAX train around 8:30 Tuesday night, near the 102nd Avenue Transit Station.

Portland NBC affiliate KGW reports one of the men fired a gun. That’s when a man who identified himself as Rambo Richardson stepped in. He told KGW he heard gunfire as the train approached the station he saw the suspect and victim struggling. Richardson overpowered the gunman, disarmed him and held him down until police arrived.

“I just acted. That’s what people are supposed to do,” Richardson told KGW. “So I just tried to be an example for others. To try to bring things back to what it used to be, the indigenous way. Helping the community–not just standing by.”

KGW reports no one was injured in the incident.
