Police investigate disturbance with shots fired, find no victims

Police are investigating a report of a disturbance with multiple gunshots fired, but found no victims, at an East Portland apartment complex.

Portland Police officers assigned to East Precinct responded to an 11:20 p.m. Saturday, March 2, report of shots fired at an apartment complex at 16047 East Burnside Street. Officers, including those from Gresham and Troutdale police departments, set up a perimeter around the complex and repeatedly tried to contact the occupants of three apartments believed to be involved in the disturbance, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, Portland police spokesman.

The Gresham Police Department used an armored vehicle to safely approach the apartments and used a loud speaker to communicate with the occupants.

Eventually police cleared all the apartments and found no gunshot victims.

Officers did find evidence of gunfire, but did not get any cooperation from witnesses, Simpson said.

The multi-agency Gang Enforcement Team is investigating and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Gang Enforcement Team at 503-823-4106.
