PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police have released a sketch in hopes of tracking down a man they believe shot someone over a case of mistaken identity.

Police were called to Providence Portland Medical Center at 8:48 p.m. July 22 after a gunshot victim was brought to the emergency room.

The 28-year-old victim is continuing to recover from multiple gunshot wounds, according to police, and expected to survive.

Police said the shooting happened at a home on the 3600 block of Southeast 49th Avenue.

Detectives believe the shooting is a case of mistaken identity, with the intended target a pervious tenant of the home who has not lived there for quite some time.

The suspect ran away after the shooting.

A forensic sketch was released of the shooter Monday. He is described as a white man, 5'9" to 5'10", with a thin build. He was unshaven and wearing a maroon hoody and sunglasses.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case. You can leave a tip online at www.crimestoppersoforegon.com or call 503-823-HELP.
