UPDATE (8/7): Murder suspect Duane Hogan captured in Beaverton.

At 10:41 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012, Clackamas County 911 received a call from a female saying both she and her mother had been shot at their house on SE Hobart Ct. in an unincorporated area of Clackamas County near the City of Happy Valley.

A short time later, others in the area called in reporting hearing gunshots.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene. It was unclear initially if the shooter was still at the location. They searched the residence and located two female victims -- later identified as Gina Marie Perrone, age 29, and Norma Jean Perrone, age 62.

The suspect had fled the scene.

Clackamas Fire District #1 and American Medical Response also responded to the scene. Both victims were transported to an area hospital with gunshot wounds.

Norma Perrone is now dead. The status of Gina Perrone is unknown at this writing.

The victims and suspect were known to each other and the suspect lived at the house where the crime occurred.

The suspect in this murder and attempted murder is Jason Duane Hogan Jr., age 33. He is described as a white male, 6'1" tall, 190 pounds, brown hair and blue eyes.

  • A dark-blue 2006 Hyundai Elantra, Oregon plate 161DMY, with a damaged hood

Both vehicles are reported as stolen.

If the vehicles are spotted, call 911 and report their location. If Hogan is spotted or if any member of the public knows his location, call 911 and do not approach or attempt to detain him.
