Wounded man arrested by police
Tamir Lawrence charged for previous incident
Portland police have arrested a man who walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound early Wednesday morning.
Tamir Lawrence, 34, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on one count of fourth-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct.
The charges stem from an earlier incident.
According to police, at 12:10 a.m. on June 29, North Precinct officers responded to a report that Lawrence walked in to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to his left calf. Officers contacted Lawrence, who told them that he had been on the porch of his residence in the 3500 block of North Albina Avenue when someone fired multiple shots at him, striking him one time.
Officers went to the area and found evidence of gunfire in the street and several bullet holes in Lawrence's residence. A crime scene was established and detectives from the Gang Enforcement Team were called to investigate.
Lawrence was unable to provide a suspect description. There were no other calls of shots fired from area residents.
Lawrence was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound and released from the hospital. Officers then him for an unrelated assault that occurred on June 20.
