PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Three non-injury shootings kept Portland's Gang Enforcement team busy Friday night, as shots rang out across southeast Portland.

The calls began at 11 p.m. Friday, when officers responded to numerous reports of shots fired at a home on the 8400 block of Southeast Brooklyn Street, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson. When police arrived, they found three cars and one apartment struck by the bullets. No one was hurt.

A second shooting occurred a few hours later, at 1:45 a.m. Saturday, on the 2700 block of Southeast 11th Avenue. Police said bullets hit several second-story windows of a residence there.

"We were in a backyard hot tub and we heard a bunch of gunshots," said Micah Sullivan, who was visiting a friend nearby when the shooting happened.

At 4:45 a.m., police responded to reports of gunshots at an apartment complex on the 3500 block of Southeast 130th Avenue. One apartment was hit. Police say no one was hurt and the occupants refused to cooperate with detectives.

Police do not have any suspects at this point and are looking into whether the shootings were related.
