Shot fired during MAX station confrontation

Portland police are looking for a young man who apparently fired a gunshot during a Thursday night confrontation at the 82nd Avenue MAX station.

No one was injured in the incident. The suspect ran from the station after the shot was fired.

Witnesses told police that the young man who fired the shot from a handgun was Hispanic or Asian, 15 to 17, medium build, wearing a black baseball cap, a black bandana, a black and gray jacket and carrying a black backpack.

Police said the incident happened at about 7:59 p.m., during a confrontation between two young men. A shot was fired from a gun and both young men left the station.
