PPB: Man breaks into home, shot by resident in NE Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - A man was shot by a resident after breaking into a home early Saturday morning, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
PPB said just after midnight Saturday, officers responded to a shooting in the 100 block of Northeast 22nd Avenue. They found a man who had been shot a few blocks away. They used a tourniquet on the arm of the man. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.
As officers were treating the man, a resident called and said they were involved. Officers learned the resident shot the man after he entered their home. The resident is cooperative, and the investigation is ongoing.
Dallas and Andrea Kraiosky live just down the street.
“From what we heard there was someone kind of yelling ‘get out of my house,’” Dallas Kraiosky said. “Then there was kind of a commotion and he sort of ran around here. You can see a blood trail from where the person ran all the way around the block and see where they stopped. Apparently, he was shot. It was crazy.”
They’ve lived in Portland for several years and said the neighborhood used to be quiet, but it’s changed in recent years.
“It’s gotten fairly sketchy recently,” Dallas Kraiosky said. “We’ve seen at least three times someone has tried to steal a catalytic converter. We just had an incident with a trailer stolen from a news agency that crashed into the side of our car. So yeah, not a surprise at all.”
Andrea Kraiosky said it’s making her rethink where she wants to live.
“It’s pretty disheartening,” she said. “We’ve been talking for a while about just getting out of the county. We really love this part of the country but it’s getting kind of scary. We have been taking more steps to protect ourselves on a daily basis as well.”
