BEAVERTON, Ore. – The Washington County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman who said she was playing a prank when she approached a group of people with a firearm Sunday night.

Deputies responded to a report of menacing with a handgun at Vista Brook Park in Raleigh Hills at 11:05 p.m.

A group of three people said they were walking in the park when someone approached them and pointed a handgun at them. The group ran to a nearby house and asked the homeowner to call 911. They described the suspect and firearm to a dispatcher.

Deputies arrived in the area and walked the Fanno Creek Trail, which runs along the south side of the park. They found and detained a person who matched the suspect description.

While searching for the suspect, they located a realistic-looking airsoft gun.

The victims confirmed that the person deputies detained was the same person who pointed the gun at them.

Deputies identified the suspect as Kadin E. Moore, 19, of Beaverton. She was lodged in the Washington County Jail on a menacing charge.

Moore said she was playing a prank on the group. Investigators say the victims and the suspect do not know each other.

Anyone with information related to the investigation should contact deputies at 503-629-0111.
