PORTLAND, Ore. — The woman who was found dead after calling 911 on Sunday afternoon saying she was being held hostage in an apartment has been identified as 29-year-old Mariela Rocha.

Davonte Donahue, a 29-year-old felon, is accused of firing at police through the door of an apartment near Southeast 171st and Division on Sunday afternoon when they came knocking.
