PPB: Three shootings in three days
Police are investigating three shootings in three days that left one person dead, two people wounded, and an occupied house damaged.
The names of the victims were not immediately released. No suspect information in any of the shootings has been released, either.
According to police, the most recent investigation began at 7:11 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, when North Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a shooting in Holladay Park in the Lloyd District. When officers arrived they located two adult victims, a male and a female, both shot in a leg. Both were conscious and talking to officers. Officers applied tourniquets to the victims' injured legs before paramedics arrived, and they went to the hospital by ambulance.
Police said the preliminary information is that the suspect may have attempted to rob two male juveniles and fired shots when running away. The two juveniles were not hurt.
Before that, another investigation began around 1:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 23, when officers responded to the 200 block of Northeast 122nd Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a victim suffering from injuries consistent with a shooting. The victim was later declared dead.
And before that, the home of an elderly person was hit with multiple bullets.
According to police, just before 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, officers responded to reports of shots fired in the 12600 block of Northeast Fremont Street.
When they arrived, officers discovered a house had been shot several times. An elderly resident and a caregiver were both inside, but neither were hurt. Police have determined that multiple bullets went through two different bedrooms, broke a window, and went through walls and the ceiling.
Anyone with information about the incident are urged to contact Portland police at 503-823-3333 and reference case No. 20-349009.
Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a cash reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest in these cases or any other unsolved felony crime. An anonymous tip can be submitted online here.
