On Saturday March 2, 2013, at 11:20 p.m., Portland Police officers assigned to East Precinct responded to an apartment complex located at 16047 East Burnside Street on the report of a disturbance with multiple gunshots fired.

Additional officers from the Gresham and Troutdale Police Departments also responded.

Officers set up a perimeter around the complex and attempted numerous contacts with occupants of three apartments believed to be involved in the disturbance. The Gresham Police Department used an armored vehicle to safely approach the apartments and used the loud speaker to gain the attention of the occupants.

Eventually all the apartments were cleared and no gunshot victims were located. Officers located evidence of gunfire but did not get any cooperation from witnesses.

The Gang Enforcement Team responded to continue the investigation and no arrests were made.

Anyone with information about this incident can call the Gang Enforcement Team at (503) 823-4106.
