This evening, Thursday June 13, 2013, at 10:25 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the area of 148th and East Burnside Street on the report of multiple shots fired.

Officers arrived in the area and located a male adult suffering from a gunshot wound to the hip. The victim told police that as he ran from the shots, he was also hit by a car, which did not remain at the scene.

Preliminary information indicates that the victim was with a group of people when several African American males confronted them and one of the suspects pulled a gun and fired several rounds. At least two vehicles then fled the area.

The shooting occurred on Northeast 148th Avenue, just North of Burnside Street.

The victim was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries.

Based on the initial information, the Gang Enforcement Team has been called to the scene to continue the investigation.

The Portland Police Bureau Gang Enforcement Team and Gun Task Force are continuing to actively investigate gang and gun crimes in the City of Portland. Anyone with information about gang and/or illegal gun crimes in the City of Portland is encouraged to provide information to the Portland Police Bureau.

If you see an illegal gun crime in progress, call 9-1-1.
