PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – People living in a southeast Portland neighborhood say they are shaken after a shooting late Thursday night.

According to law enforcement, no one was hurt during the shooting in Portland’s Mount Tabor neighborhood. Officers responded around 10 p.m. to a report of shots fired near 53rd and Southeast Stark Street.

Police say the neighborhood is a very unusual spot to have a shooting like this happen, and they’re looking for possible leads after they say a home and a vehicle were hit by bullets.

FOX 12 Friday spoke with Keegan Meyer, who says he and his girlfriend were home Thursday night when they heard more than a half dozen gunshots.

Meyer says he has bullet holes in his fence and says his neighbor’s house was also hit by gunfire.

“I am not around guns that often, but I could tell right away that it was a gun,” Meyer said. “Me and my fiancée dropped immediately to the ground and crawled to our bedroom, called the cops, made sure the coast was clear.”

Meyer says they are glad no one was hurt and that their dog Nama wasn’t out in the backyard at the time.

Police can’t say at this point if this was a targeted attack, but say they don’t think this is connected to any gang activity. The Gun Violence Reduction Team is leading the ongoing investigation.

Officers say they are no suspects in this case, but they’re asking for anyone with information to contact Detective Brian Sims at 503-823-2079 or at brian.sims@portlandoregon.gov.
