PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Police Bureau officers from the North Precinct and from the Gang Enforcement Team are investigating reports of gunfire in the 5000 block of North Commercial Avenue Friday night.

When officers arrived on scene around 8:00 p.m. they did see evidence of shots being fired, but did not find any gunshot victims.

There was no property damaged found, and preliminary information indicates the shooting happened near a party attended by several suspected gang members.

Sources told Fox 12 that the party was celebrating Marquis Chaney’s birthday. Chaney was the victim of a fatal shooting a mile away from the party in March, and would have turned 30 on August 3.

The PPB asks that anyone with information about the shooting call the Police Non-Emergency Line at 503-823-3333.
