PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police said a drive-by shooting that injured a 23-year-old man early Tuesday morning is gang-related.

Officers were called to a home in the 7000 block of North Commercial Avenue just after midnight where they found a man bleeding from several gunshot wounds. 

According to investigators the man had just been in an argument with several people inside a car when one of them fired several shots at him. 

Police said the man was taking to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Officers spotted a car matching the description driving away from the area and pulled the car over near Southeast 7th Avenue and Southeast Division Street. Police detained the driver of the car, but said no arrests had been made in connection with the shooting. 

Witnesses said several bullet holes could be seen in the side of a home where the shooting happened. 

Investigators believe the shooting is gang-related and have called upon detectives from the city's Gang Enforcement unit to investigate the shooting.
