Police investigate gang shooting
The Gang Enforcement Team is investigating an early Saturday morning shooting that left one man wounded.
According to police, at 3:01 a.m. on June 8, East Precinct officers responded to Northeast 83rd Avenue and Klickitat Street after several people called 9-1-1 to report hearing multiple gunshots.
Officers arrived and contacted several people that were part of a dispersing crowd. Officers located evidence of gunfire but did not locate any victims. A neighboring home and vehicle sustained bullet damage. The home is unrelated to the disturbance.
Sometime later, a male gunshot victim was dropped off at a Portland hospital. His injuries appeared to be non-life-threatening and investigators believe he was shot during the disturbance at Northeast 83rd and Klickitat.
Based on a preliminary investigation, the Gang Enforcement Team was called out to conduct a full investigation.
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to contact the Gang Enforcement Team at (503) 823-4106.
