Man wounded in early morning confrontation

UPDATE • Alexander Ray English shot while standing on his front porch

Portland police are looking for the person who fired several shots early Tuesday morning in a shooting that wounded a 23-year-old North Portland man.

Police said Alexander Ray English was wounded in the attack.

Officers from the North Precinct were called at about 12:08 a.m. to a house in the 7000 block of North Commercial Avenue, on reports that gunshots had been fired in the area. At the house, officers found English who had been shot several times. He was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The shooting could be linked to gang activity.

Police said English was standing on his porch when a dark blue American sedan approached the house and someone inside the car fired several shots.

Officers were able to stop a car matching the description at Southeast Seventh Avenue and Division Street, but no one in the vehicle was arrested. Police later said it was not the vehicle involved in the shooting.

Police have not found the person who fired the gunshots.
