Man shot at in leg in possible gang shooting
Police are investigating a gang shooting that left one man injured in the Centennial area.
At 10:43 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, officers with the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct responded to a report of a shooting in the 17200 block of Southeast Division Street, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, police spokesman. There they found Tyrone Dwayne Warren, 25, of Southeast Portland with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to a leg.
Investigators determined that the shooting was at an apartment complex where the victim lives in the 2400 block of Southeast 152nd Avenue, but originally thought it took place somewhere in the area of 158th and 162nd avenues on Division Street, Simpson said. The victim was then given a ride from the scene but the driver stopped in the 17200 block of Division and called 911.
The bureau's Gang Enforcement Team is still investigating.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Det. Brian Sims at 503 823-2079 or Brian.Sims@PortlandOregon.gov.
