The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in solving a shooting that occurred in Southeast Portland's Creston-Kenilworth Neighborhood.

On July 22, 2014, at 8:48 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to Providence Medical Center, located at 4805 Northeast Glisan Street, on the report that a gunshot victim had been brought to the emergency room.

Officers and medical personnel arrived and the 28-year-old male victim was transported to a Portland trauma hospital for treatment to multiple gunshot wounds. The victim is continuing to recover from his injuries and is expected to survive.

Officers spoke with the man who brought the victim to the hospital and learned that the shooting occurred at a residence in the 3600 block of Southeast 49th Avenue, and that the suspect fled the scene.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5'9" to 5'10" tall, thin build, unshaven, wearing a maroon hoody and sunglasses.

Detectives believe that the shooting is a case of mistaken identity for a previous tenant who has not resided at the home for quite some time.

A forensic sketch is being released to aid detectives in identifying the suspect.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
