Two arrested In shooting investigation

Posted: Updated:

Two people are under arrest in connection with a shooting in Southeast Portland.

Portland Police arrested Jesse Barto and Christian Burshia after a car crash and shooting last Wednesday. An officer arrived at the corner of Southeast 163rd and Division after someone called 911 saying they heard a speeding car and gunshots. Police found two cars that had been in a crash, but didn't find any suspects or victims at the time.

At first police thought this was a case of road rage, but they now believe it was part of an ongoing fight between several different groups.

After an investigating, police made the arrests. Barto is accused of trying to use a car to cause a crash and is facing an assault charge. Burshia was arrested on a previous warrant.

Police are still investigating the incident. If you have any information about the incident, call detectives at (503) 823-2092.
