PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Police are investigating a shooting that injured one person in northeast Portland Friday night.

At around 9:44 p.m., officers responded to the Taco Bell near Northeast Broadway and Northeast 8th Avenue on the reports of shots heard. 

Officers arrived to the scene and found evidence of gunfire, but no victims or suspects.

Police said a shooting victim arrived at an area hospital a short time later. The victim's condition is not being released at this time.

According to police, there is an indication that others were injured in the shooting that have not reported to police.

Several witnesses told FOX 12 they heard eight or nine gunshots and saw a man limping.

"I hear boom, boom - everyone takes off running to hide," said one witness. "Sounded like a firecracker to me, because I've never heard guns go off like that."

Police said investigators believe more than one firearm was used during the shooting. An occupied building, a vehicle, and a parking meter were all struck by bullets, according to police.

Northeast Broadway and 8th Avenue were temporarily closed while law enforcement was on scene.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to send tips to Detective Brent Christensen at 503-823-2087 Brent.Christensen@portlandoregon.gov or Detective Bryan DeClercque at 503-823-2056 Bryan.Declercque@portlandoregon.gov.
