This morning, Tuesday February 12, 2013, at 2:12 a.m., Portland Police officers assigned to East Precinct responded to Southeast 85th Avenue and Powell Boulevard on the report of a hit and run crash to a pedestrian.
Officers arrived and located the adult male victim down in the street on Powell Boulevard suffering from what appeared to be injuries from a crash. Medical personnel responded and transported the man to a Portland hospital for treatment.
A truck driver stopped nearby told officers that he saw the man lying in the road so he pulled over to help.

There is no suspect information at this time so police are asking for the public to provide information on the shooting.
