Three men are recovering from gunshot wounds after a shooting, and the Gun Violence Reduction Team (GVRT) is seeking help from the public to obtain more information.
On Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 1:41a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report that someone had a gunshot wound in the 10200 block of Northeast Knott Street. While officers were responding, another call came in from a hospital that two other victims, adult males, walked in with gunshot wounds.
When officers arrived at both locations they located the three victims. The victim at Northeast Knott Street had a gunshot wound to the arm, so officers applied a tourniquet. Paramedics arrived and transported the victim by ambulance.
At the hospital, one victim had a gunshot wound to the leg and another victim had a gunshot wound in the abdomen. All of the patients are believed to have non-life threatening injuries.
Officers located two vehicles, both 4 door sedans, with evidence of gunfire. Upon initial investigation, the evidence suggests that the shootings happened elsewhere and involved occupants of the two vehicles. No arrests have been made.
GVRT responded and has assumed the investigation. Detectives believe the shooting happened somewhere near the intersection of Northeast Glisan Street and Interstate-205. But at this point investigators have not located a crime scene, and are asking for help from the public. If anyone heard shots, witnessed this shooting, finds evidence of a shooting, or has photographic or video evidence of the shooting, they're asked call 503-823-3333. Please do not move or touch evidence.
If anyone has any other information about the shooting, they're asked to notify GVRT either directly or anonymously through Crime Stoppers. The case number is 20-53816.
Anyone with information about gun crimes in the City of Portland is encouraged to provide information to the Portland Police Bureau's Tactical Operations Division at 503-823-4106 or email information to GVRT@portlandoregon.gov .
Information learned from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube should be shared with investigators as these tips may lead to the identification of a suspect or suspects.
If you see a gun crime in progress, call 9-1-1.
