Fortunately, no injuries were reported when gunshots were heard along S.E. Rhone Street, in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood, on Thursday evening, November 21.
Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Central Precinct officers cordoned off blocks around the area, but their attention was focused on Rhone Street, just east of S.E. 28th Avenue.
A PPB Canine Team was called in to sniff out a suspect, but was unable to find a scent to track. Officers did find a vehicle freshly-perforated with bullet holes.
"There have been some problems near the big apartment complexes (along S.E. 28th Avenue), but here, in this part of our neighborhood, things are usually quiet," Quinton Tyler remarked to THE BEE as he waited, holding bags of groceries, for police to allow him to return to his home.
No one was injured; police continue to investigate this incident.
