Reward Offered in Injury Shooting of Bicycle Rider – Crime Stoppers Featured Case #20-13

The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in a May 2020 injury shooting.

On May 5, 2020, at approximately 10:22 p.m., 42-year-old Michael Hilbrandt was riding a bicycle eastbound on East Burnside Street near 12th Avenue. There was a vehicle pulled over and blocking the bike lane between Southeast 12th and 13th Avenues, on East Burnside Street.

The victim rode around the vehicle on the driver side, and tapped on the window, to allow the driver to know he was passing on the left. The victim told police that he believed he saw a female near the vehicle but did not know if she was in anyway associated to the vehicle. The victim then rode southbound on Southeast 13th Avenue. Immediately after turning onto 13th, the victim could heard screeching tires and believed the vehicle he had passed was coming to run him over. The victim rode to the east side of 13th, near Southeast Ankeny Street.

The driver of the vehicle, described as a silver or gray, small SUV, approximately 3-4 years old, pulled over near where the victim was standing. The driver, described as heavyset Black male, 30-40 years old, said, “I’m going to shoot you,” and proceeded to shoot the bicyclist one time, striking him in his arm. The suspect then drove out of the area to the south and was not located. The female that was standing near the vehicle was not located and it is unclear if she is associated to the suspect.
