PORTLAND, Ore. — Authorities have taken a Gresham man into custody in connection with a shooting that seriously wounded a woman, and they have safely recovered the man’s 2-year-old daughter.

Oregon State Police say an Amber Alert for the child was canceled Saturday night.

Earlier in the day, police found the woman suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound in a Gresham apartment.

Police later issued the alert for 2-year-old Paige Cavett, daughter of 36-year-old Joshua R. Cavett. He was characterized earlier as a person of interest in the shooting.

Cavett is the child’s father, but does not have legal custody.

Police have not released further details on the woman’s identity or her condition.
