Man wounded in gang-related shooting


Police say a Northeast Portland man in his 20s was wounded Wednesday night in a shooting linked to gang activity.

The man's name was not released. Police said he suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at a local hospital.

Officers from the North Precinct were called at about 9 p.m. to a neighborhood near Northeast Sandy Boulevard and 119th Avenue, where they found the shooting victim.

Witnesses said the person who fired the gunshots was an African-American man, about 20 years old, 5-foot-6, weighing about 175 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie.

A search of the area failed to find the suspect.
