The cause of this unusual shooting incident in the Brooklyn neighborhood is unknown

DAVID F. ASHTON - After the unsuccessful search of the Brooklyn neighborhood for the assailant, a Central Precinct officer return to his vehicle. Shots heard in the Brooklyn neighborhood led to calls to the 9-1-1 Center at 12:41 a.m. early Wednesday morning, May 23. Central Precinct police officers responded to investigate.

Near S.E.16th Avenue and Rhine Street, officers came across a wounded adult man, and evidence of gunshots – but few clues as to who had done the shooting, or why.

"Emergency medical responders provided the man medical aid and transported him to an area hospital by ambulance, suffering from what was believed to be a non-life-threatening gunshot injury," Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley later told THE BEE.

Officers unsuccessfully searched the area for the assailant. "The suspect was reportedly last seen leaving the area in a dark colored sedan with tinted windows," he said, without providing any suspect description.

The case is now in the hands of the PPB Detective Division, which requests that anyone with information about the shooting contact the Assault Detail at 503/823-0479.
