PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police in Northeast Portland are investigating a drive-by shooting in the Cully neighborhood. 

Witnesses began calling police at around 8:50 p.m. Monday evening after hearing gunshots.

Officers arrived at the intersection of Northeast Cully Boulevard and Killingsworth Street and spoke with an 18-year-old male.  He told officers that he was standing outside the Brothers Market & Deli when a vehicle drove by on Killingsworth and someone inside opened fire on him.  None of the bullets hit the teen.

The suspect vehicle fled the scene before the victim could get a good look at it.  He was unable to provide a description of the shooter.

Officers blocked off the area and collected evidence.  They are treating it as a gang shooting.
