PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police had not yet made any arrests Friday morning in a shooting that occurred the night before in the St. Johns area of north Portland.

Officers responded to the area around North Swenson Street and Iris Way just before 9 p.m. Thursday after someone reported hearing gunfire.

Police said they found evidence of a shooting, including blood, but they did not locate any victims in the area.

Then, shortly after 9 p.m., a man later identified as Rasheed Lambert, 19, arrived at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland with a gunshot wound that police said was not life-threatening.

Police said they did not have any information on a possible suspect or suspects, but said the shooting appears to be gang-related.

Anyone with information on this case should call Detective Meghan Burkeen at 503-823-2092.
