Who is Shane Finnell?
An Oregon man allegedly shot his sister-in-law Sunday morning after an argument he had with his brother over dirty laundry, police said.
Officers arrived at the scene of the shooting at 8:34 a.m. to find Alexandra Arb-Bloodgood, 29, dead at her home in suburban North Portland from a gunshot wound to the head, according to court documents.
Arrested and Charged
Police arrested Shane Finnell, 25, at the scene and charged him with second degree murder and illegal use of a weapon in the murder.
When he met officers on the front lawn of the house, Finnell reportedly told them, “I did something horrible,” before they arrested him.
Finnell’s brother Jordan Arb reportedly told police the shooting took place after the two argued over dirty laundry, during which Finnell threw a houseplant at Arb.
After the argument, Finnell allegedly walked behind Arb-Bloodgood with a chrome revolver and shot her in the back of the head while she was sitting in a chair in the backyard of her home.
Court records for a month-long speeding ticket suggest the three lived together in the home, The Oregonian reported. Details about Finnell’s employment status were unclear.
Upstairs neighbor Jacob Chow told police he heard a single shot before looking outside to see Finnell standing across the street, looking upset and ‘waving’ his arms.

When Chow asked Finnell what happened, he reportedly told him that he had shot ‘Alex’, referring to his brother’s wife.
Matt Bloodgood, Arb-Bloodgood’s brother, told Fox 12 that he was still in shock and that the murder was, ‘Something that should never happen to anyone.’
“She was just a great person,” he said, describing her as “very feisty” and added that “Word can’t even describe what kind of person she really was.”
“If you ever have someone express a desire to hurt themselves or others, feel free to try to do something about it,” she said.
“I guess that’s the most important thing we can get out.”
The Portland Police Office reported that this was the 32nd homicide in the city this year.
According to the city’s crime statistics, there were four homicides at the same time last year and three the year before.
