Multiple injuries after Glenfair shooting
Gunfire erupted last Thursday in Portland's Glenfair neighborhood in what police believe to be a gang-related shooting that left two people in the hospital with injuries.
Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officers responded to reports of the shooting in the 15100 block of Southeast Stark Street. Witnesses told police they heard four to five gunshots, a man yell he had been shot, and a vehicle speeding from the area.
Both victims of the shooting are adult males who separately drove themselves to local hospitals with gunshot wounds. One had non-life-threatening injuries, while the other had serious injuries and was transferred to a trauma hospital, police said.
The Gang Violence Response Team took over the investigation. There is no information on the suspects.
Anyone with knowledge of the shooting is asked to call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333 or the Tactical Operations Division at 503-823-4106.
