This afternoon, Saturday July 12, 2014, at 12:38 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of shots fired in the 6900 block of Southeast Rhone Street.

Officers arrived in the area and contacted the reporting party who told police that a dark-colored SUV stopped at a stop sign and the occupants, a male and a female, were arguing with each other. The reporting party told them to stop arguing or he'd call the police.

The driver pulled away from the intersection then stopped and fired several shots before speeding away northbound on 70th Avenue. The vehicle is described as a dark-colored SUV, possibly an older Suburban, black wheels, possibly with one back window broken out, bearing Washington plates. The driver is described as a white male in his 40s with lots of tattoos.

Nobody was injured during the shooting and it does not appear to be gang-related.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call the Police Non-Emergency Line at (503) 823-3333.
