Portland police are investigating reports of gunfire in the Lents neighborhood late Monday night.

Officers responded to the 9100 block of Southeast Duke Street just before midnight and located a home that had been struck by gunfire.

There were no victims located at the scene, and officers said no one had arrived at area hospitals with a gunshot wound. The officers were also not able to locate any suspects associated with this shooting.

Investigators learned that prior to the gunfire, witnesses heard several men arguing near the residence that was hit by the gunfire. Another witness told police that a dark-colored sedan was seen leaving the area following the gunfire.
