Detectives Investigate Shooting in Northeast Portland

January 30, 2003 00:00


On Wednesday, January 29, 2003, at about 10:10 p.m., East Precinct Uniform Officers responded to a call of a male slumped behind the wheel of a vehicle near the intersection of Northeast 139th Avenue and Northeast Sacramento Street. Upon arrival, officers found 23-year-old Ryan L. Rink unconscious in the driver's seat of a red Nissan Pathfinder. An ambulance was immediately dispatched to the scene, and paramedics discovered Rink had suffered at least one gunshot wound and was in very serious condition.

Rink was transported to Emanuel Hospital while Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to initiate an investigation. At this time, detectives have very little information, and have been unable to determine how rink arrived in the area or where he lives. There is currently no information that Rink is associated with any home in the area.

Anyone with information in this investigation is asked to call Detective Stu Winn at (503) 823-0768 or Detective Barry Renna at (503) 823-0255. Detectives are not releasing a photograph of Rink at this time.

This investigation is continuing.
