Crip gang member shot outside Portland strip club on Friday
Officials say shooting and traffic stop in Troutdale are related
Investigators have linked a traffic stop in Troutdale to a shooting Friday outside a Portland strip club, which left a 21-year-old man seriously injured, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, spokesman at the Portland Police Bureau.
Police said Damariea Ramone Harris, a documented Crip gang member, was shot just before 1 a.m. in the parking lot of the Pitiful Princess strip club at 12646 S.E. Division St.
Harris was not at the scene when police arrived, but a short time later police learned he had been dropped off at a Portland hospital with a gunshot wound to his face.
Not long after, Troutdale police stopped a car that may have been involved in the shooting.
The driver of the car, Torrance Alexander Hunter, 19, was taken into custody on a parole violation and booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
Investigators do not know if Hunter was connected to the events outside the Pitiful Princess.
Gang detectives are continuing to investigate, Simpson said.
