On Sunday, February 28, 2021, Portland Police responded to at least four shootings in different neighborhoods.

At about 4:00 a.m., officers responded to a report of the sound of yelling and a shot heard in the Hazelwood neighborhood near the 13600 block of East Burnside Street. Following information provided by callers, officers found one shell casing, but no evidence of any bullet strikes, and no victim.

At about 1:28 p.m., officers responded to a shooting near the 4600 block of Northeast 102nd Avenue, in the Parkrose neighborhood. Officers arrived to find a shooting victim, who was transported by ambulance to a hospital. There is no victim information to release.
Later, at about 8:58 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to more gunfire in the Hazelwood neighborhood, this time near Southeast 139th Avenue and Southeast Main Street. When they arrived they found at least 21 shell casings, but no victim and no noticeable property damage.

While officers where on that scene, they heard gunfire to the northeast and went to investigate. Near Southeast 148th Avenue and Southeast Stark Street, in the Centennial neighborhood, witnesses flagged officers down and said people fired shots from a vehicle, which sped off. Officers found 12 shell casings and evidence that bullets struck a vehicle and a building nearby.

There is not enough certainty about vehicle or suspect descriptions to release information about them.

This summary is not necessarily an exhaustive list of every shots or shooting call on this date. At this time, there is nothing to suggest these shootings are related. Each of them remains under investigation. Any additional information will be released at the direction of investigators.
