PORTLAND — A gunmen shot three people inside Mystic Gentleman’s Club at Southeast 99th and Stark on Saturday night before being shot himself by a bouncer.
Brian Rizzo, a 26-year-old security guard at the club remains in critical condition. Nichole Procter, 27, and 31-year-old Gonzalo Zamora-Hernandez are recovering at home.
The shooter was critically wounded. Police released his identity on Tuesday. 43-year-old Thomas Hjelmeland is still at the hospital awaiting charges.
Jon Baer returned fire on the suspect in self-defense and has not been charged with a crime. His weapon though has been seized for the investigation.
There have been a history of problems at the club. A man was shot and killed in the parking lot in the summer of 2012. A woman who was later found murdered at Blue Lake Park in Fairview last October met her suspected killers at Falco’s Pub, which shares the same address.
