On July 2, 2020 at approximately 2:41 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 8700 hundred block of North Swenson Street on reports of a shooting. A 911-caller notified dispatch that a subject had fired a gun at another person and then fled the scene eastbound.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned a victim who had been shot at also fled the scene with another person. Officers immediately began an extensive block search to locate the suspect. While searching the area, officers reported hearing a single gunshot. At this time, it is unknown whether the gunshot was intended to harm an officer or not.

As the search continued for the suspect, the victim called 911, letting dispatch know they were unharmed, and that the suspect was a person known to them.

At this time, the suspect has not been located and this continues to be an ongoing investigation. There is no known risk to the community.

If anyone has information about the shooting and has not been contacted by investigators, they are asked to call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

An update will be provided if appropriate for the investigation.
