Portland police are looking for two suspects who robbed a man of his shoes and then later shot someone at a 7-Eleven in northeast Portland.
The two suspects first robbed two men at gunpoint and took one of the man's shoes near Northeast 82nd Avenue and Sandy Boulevard at 3:20 a.m.
Police said the robbers then approached three people at the 7-Eleven store and tried to sell them drugs. The three people declined to purchase the drugs, police said, and one of the robbers opened fire as the three victims got in their car to leave.
Police said the shooter had walked up to the car window and fired one round from a handgun into the car, striking the driver in the arm. The victim is expected to survive.
Officers searched the area thoroughly but were unable to locate the shooters. At one point, they thought the suspects were holed up in an apartment nearby, but they did not find them there.
The shooter is described as a black man and about 30 years old with a heavy build. His accomplice was also black and in his 30s.
Anyone with information about either of the crimes is asked to call police.
