In one incident, police say several people were involved in a shooting that left one person wounded near Northwest Fourth Avenue and Burnside Street on Saturday, Sept. 4.

The Portland Police Bureau says two groups in separate cars got into a fight that evening, and one person fired a gun. One person was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

Officers recovered both cars and one gun, but are still looking for the people involved. Police said the shooting suspect fled the scene on foot.

In another incident, a person was shot in the face in downtown Portland in the early morning hours of Thursday, Aug. 26. According to the bureau, officers responded to a call and learned that a shooting took place around 1:45 a.m. in a parking lot near Southwest 13th Avenue and Washington Street. The victim, who had a "graze wound to the face," walked to Southwest Second Avenue and Columbia Street to call the police.

Officers found the crime scene and tried to talk to witnesses, but investigators believe numerous witnesses left before police got there.

Anyone with information about the shooting can contact Det. Sara Clark at 503-823-0422 and reference Case No. 21-237118.
