Suspected Vancouver prowler was shot in chest
The office said Thursday the death of 19-year-old Iosif Dumitrash of Portland was a homicide.
He was killed early Tuesday by a resident who thought he was a car prowler. Sean Doucette was holding him at gunpoint and waiting for police when shots were fired.
Doucette's lawyer says he was attacked and fired in self-defense.
Prosecutors say Dumitrash was trying to walk away. They're charging Doucette with second-degree murder.
Family members told The Oregonian that Dumitrash was in the wrong place at the wrong time. About 200 people gathered at the Portland Church of God Wednesday night for a memorial service.
