15-Year-Old Male Injured in Drive-By Shooting

April 28, 2006 00:00


On April 27, 2006, at 2:54 p.m., Northeast Precinct officers responded to the area of North Killingsworth Street and North Commercial Avenue on a “shots fired” call. Upon arrival, the officers discovered 15-year-old Todd Alen Rutherford Jr. suffering from a single gun shot wound to his torso. Rutherford was conscious and was immediately transported to a local hospital where he is in stable condition.

Investigators from the Gang Violence Reduction Team as well as Portland Detectives assigned to Gang Enforcement Team are working to develop suspect information and determined if the shooting is gang related.

Detectives are seeking witnesses to the shooting and asking anyone with information to call Detective Pete Simpson at (503) 823-2087.

This investigation is continuing.
