Man dies in shooting outside NE Portland hotel
PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - A man died in a shooting outside a northeast Portland hotel on Sunday morning, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
PPB said just before 3:30 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a hotel near Northeast Sandy Boulevard and Northeast 82nd Avenue. When they arrived, they found a man who was shot. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
A neighbor who lives nearby said she was home when it happened.
“I was asleep,” the neighbor, Brenda, said. “I heard a couple gun shots and then I heard a car zoom off.”
She went upstairs to ask her granddaughter, who was awake.
“I said, ‘did you hear anything?’” Brenda said. “She’s like, ‘somebody just shot some gunshots and zoomed off.’ Then a few minutes later, there was police cars everywhere.”
Multiple hotel guests FOX 12 spoke with said they were all asleep and didn’t hear a sound. They said they weren’t surprised something like this happened.
Brenda said, after living in the area for 25 years, she also isn’t shocked this much violence happens just yards away from her family.
“There was a lot of stuff going on over there last night so I knew something was gonna happen,” she said. “I’m just glad my grandson didn’t hear it. My great-grandson, he’s five.”
Police have not made any arrests or released any suspect information.
