Somebody was shooting, but at what or whom is unclear. They didn't hit anyone, it appears

DAVID F. ASHTON - Police blocked off streets near Kenilworth Park after gunshot evidence was found. There was a shooting, they confirmed; but apparently nobody was hurt. As many parents were getting their kids ready for school at nearby Grout Elementary School, in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood, on Thursday morning, November 1, gunshots sounded near Kenilworth Park.

At 6:52 a.m., Central Precinct officers were dispatched to the northeast edge of the park at S.E. 34th Avenue and Cora Drive.

"Preliminary information suggests that responding officers located evidence of gunfire," confirmed Portland Police spokesperson Sgt. Chris Burley. "There were no reports of injury or property damage,"

"No one has been taken into custody in connection with this shooting at this time, but an investigation continues," Burley said.
