A man is facing attempted murder and assault charges after an injury shooting in the Northwest District Neighborhood.

On Friday, February 16, 2024 at 1:42a.m., Central Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of someone shot outside of a strip club in the 2400 block of Northwest 24th Avenue. Officers learned that the victim, an adult female, left the scene and had a taxi drive her to the hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

Officers obtained a description of the suspect and saw him driving away from the scene. They stopped and detained him at Northwest 25th Avenue and Northwest Raleigh Street. A handgun was seized as evidence (photo).

Detectives from the Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. Preliminary investigation indicates that the suspect was a patron of the establishment who got in a fight with a man outside. The fight concluded, and the man and a friend helped the suspect to his car. The suspect retrieved a handgun from his car and he fired at least one shot at the men as they ran away. No 911 calls were made about the shooting. The suspect remained at the scene, attempting to get back in the club, but was refused.

Roughly 20 minutes later, the suspect then fired in the direction of the club as a female employee was coming out to a taxi to go home. The employee was struck in the leg. She got in the taxi and went to the hospital for treatment.

Gabriel D. Hutchings, 27, of Portland, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree (2 counts), Assault in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon (2 counts).

If anyone has information about this case and has not already spoken to police, please e-mail attn: ECST and reference case number 24-38416.
