Gang detectives investigate shooting outside Pitiful Princess

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A shooting outside the Pitiful Princess strip club early Friday morning appears be gang-related, according to new information released by the Portland Police Bureau.

Gang Enforcement Team investigators and criminalists from the bureau's forensic evidence division are gathering evidence at the club at Southeast Division Street and 126th Avenue.

Officers who first responded there at 1 a.m. found evidence of a shooting, but no victims or suspects.

A short time later, Troutdale police officers stopped a car that may have been involved in the shooting. The 19-year-old driver, Torrance Hunter, was arrested on a parole violation warrant and hauled off to jail, but it's not clear if Hunter was involved in the shooting.

Around the same time Hunter was arrested, a 21-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the face was dropped off at a Portland hospital.

Police are still investigating and trying to determine what happened outside the Pitiful Princess strip club.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Mitch Hergert at 503-823-2081 or mitch.hergert@portlandoregon.gov.
