Police seek ride-share driver who picked up shooting victim
Portland Police say they need to speak with a ride-share driver who gave a shooting victim a ride to the hospital.
Central Precinct officers responded to Southwest Third Avenue and Ash Street around 2:28 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 afer hearing what "they thought might be a gunshot" fired downtown. They later located the scene of a shooting.
Officers then learned from hospital authorities that the adult male victim had walked into a hospital.
Police say a driver for an unspecified company picked up the injured man and another man, who was not wounded, in the early morning hours and transported them to Oregon Health & Science University.
The condition of the wounded man was not released, nor was any suspect information disclosed, though the Gun Violence Reduction Team has been assigned the case.
