PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Gang Enforcement Team is investigating a pair of shootings overnight in northeast Portland.

The first shooting occurred at 12:14 a.m. Thursday outside the Holiday Inn on the 8400 block of Northeast Columbia Boulevard.

Emergency crews located an 18-year-old man suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance with his girlfriend, who was also suffering from a minor gunshot wound.

Neither victim had any suspect information, according to police.

At 2:51 a.m. Thursday, police again responded to reports of shots fired at Northeast 93rd Avenue and Thompson Street.

Evidence of gunfire was found in the street, along with damage to a motorhome parked in a driveway. Two people inside the motorhome were not injured.

Investigators said the shootings were connected and they are believed to be gang-related.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Portland Police Bureau's Tactical Operations Division at 503-823-4106 or gangs@portlandoregon.gov.
