This evening, Monday July 1, 2013, at 8:50 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to the report of a drive-by shooting at Northeast Cully Boulevard and Killingsworth Street.

Officers arrived in the area and contacted an 18-year-old male who told police that he was standing outside the Brothers Market & Deli when a vehicle drove by him eastbound on Killingsworth and someone fired multiple shots at him. The vehicle, unknown make or model, continued eastbound on Killingsworth out of the area.

There is no suspect description.

The victim was not hit but officers did locate evidence of gunfire and have blocked off eastbound Killingsworth just west of Cully Boulevard.

Based on preliminary information, officers believe the shooting is gang-related so the Gang Enforcement Team is responding to conduct an investigation.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to contact the Gang Enforcement Team at (503) 823-4106.
