Two homeless men injured in early morning shooting


Two homeless men were wounded Wednesday in an early morning shooting in Southeast Portland.

Police said the men were sleeping outside at about 5:12 a.m. in the 100 block of Southeast Belmont Street when a black four-door pickup drove past and someone inside fired several shots at them.

One man was struck in the chest and was seriously injured. A bullet grazed the other man's side.

Medical crews took the wounded man to an area hospital with what they said were life-threatening injuries. His name and medical condition have not been released.

No suspects have been located.
