VANCOUVER, Wash. – A police chase ended at gunpoint on a North
Portland street after a man allegedly robbed a Hazel Dell bank,

Responding officers spotted the SUV and chased the suspect through Hazel Dell, then lost him.
A short time later, police said he carjacked a black Ford Focus in
Vancouver. Officers spotted that car southbound on I-5 and followed it.
They chased him for a time and then backed off as he raced through
neighborhoods in the St. John's area.
Officers eventually tracked him to a North Portland neighborhood and
boxed in his vehicle near the intersection of Kellogg and Burlington in
North Portland. That’s when he got out and ran and reportedly tried to
carjack another vehicle before officers swarmed him, with guns drawn,

Ramirez. "I have four kids in the van so I'm scared for them."
The suspect was later identified as Brent Woodall and police said it was also his 29th birthday.

County Sheriff's Office. "It'll take some time to unwind this whole
