After 29 bullets were fired, the gunman was the only person who was injured.

A neighbor snuck up on the gunman and knocked him out before others helped tie him up. According to Fox News Luke Stolarzyk, 32, allegedly fired more than two dozen rounds "indiscriminately" at an occupied apartment building in Southwest Portland. A booking photo shows Stolarzyk with two black eyes and other facial bruising, his injuries occurred after he was disarmed and detained him.

After being woken up by a loud argument, neighbor John Dickson went outside and saw the suspect with a handgun and green laser. Dickson crept up and bashed Stolarzyk with a stick. Then he wrestled the gun away, narrowly avoiding getting shot and pummeled the suspect with a his fists until he was unconscious. When the responding officers arrived they found several people standing around the defendant, who was hogtied and has been beaten up.

The incident started after a dispute over noise and a dog between Stolarzyk and another neighbor, Kenneth Nelson. He was armed with a handgun at first but went home and returned with the rifle before opening fire, investigators alleged. Police recovered 29 shell casings and an AR-15 at the scene. They also saw bullet strikes in multiple cars and apartments and found a handgun at Stolarzyk's apartment.

Stolarzyk was charged with multiple counts of unlawful use of a weapon, criminal mischief, discharging a firearm, attempted murder, and nine counts of reckless endangerment. He faces seven felonies and 10 misdemeanors. His bond on the top charge of attempted second degree murder was set at $250,000.
