Shooting incidents exploded across the city & in Southeast, with the disbanding of the 'Gun Violence Reduction Team'

DAVID F. ASHTON - This Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood street was blocked off to allow officers to gather evidence of the first of two shootings, in which a victim was wounded. In the first incident, on Monday, August 2, Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officers were dispatched at 11:35 p.m. to a shooting report on S.E. Harney Drive near 58th Avenue.

"But the suspect had fled, prior to police arrival," reported Portland Police spokesperson Lt. Greg Pashley.

"Officers got there and found a person suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, and got that victim medical attention," Pashley told THE BEE. "The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital with what seemed to be a non-life-threatening wound."

Officers spoke with potential witnesses and gathered evidence. The investigation is ongoing. PPB investigators welcome information about it; it's Case No. 21-213078. E-mail what you know to – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Bullets perforate Brentwood-Darlington vehicle

COURTESY OF PORTLAND POLICE BUREAU - Apparently nobody was wounded in the second shooting, but officers did find this car, sporting fresh bullet holes.  Then, two days later and not far from the earlier shooting, at 2:13 a.m., East Precinct officers were sent to another report of "Shots Fired" – this time, along S.E. Flavel Street near 66th Avenue.

Officers didn't find any victim, but they did come across an unoccupied car with fresh bullet holes. "No one was injured in this incident; the suspect or suspects fled prior to police arrival," Lt. Pashley said.

Again, if you can provide information about this shooting, be sure to reference Case No. 21-214154 when you e-mail – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
