Shooting under investigation in east Portland - KPTV - FOX 12

No witnesses come forward after suspected gang shooting

Posted: Updated:

Shots were fired on East Burnside Street Sunday afternoon, but police said no witnesses have come forward and no arrests have been made in the case.

Police were called out to the 15800 block of Burnside at 3:18 p.m. on reports of multiple shots fired and several people running away from the area, with some leaving in cars.

Police detained one known gang associate after setting up a neighborhood perimeter. Witnesses pointed out one apartment in the Windsor Court Apartments complex where people may have run to after the shots were fired.

Officers detained several known gang associates at that apartment.

The Gang Enforcement Team investigated, but officers said no witnesses came forward with information on who was directly involved in the shooting, so nobody was arrested. The case remains under investigation.
