Drive-by shooting on SE Holgate injures passenger
Apparently no one saw the shooting that took place on August 6, just after 6 p.m., on S.E. Holgate Boulevard, just west of 82nd Avenue of Roses – when suspects in one car fired gunshots at another car, striking it.
East Precinct officers were dispatched at 6:47 p.m. – but not to that intersection, because the victim automobile had already left the scene of the shooting.
"The victim vehicle ran off the street near S.E. 67th Avenue along Powell Boulevard; one of the passengers inside it had been shot in the shoulder by a suspect in the other vehicle," explained Portland Police spokesperson Officer Melissa Newhard. "The victim was transported to an area hospital; condition is unknown. The suspect vehicle is still outstanding; but, given the circumstances of the incident, there appears to be no threat to the community."
Anyone with information about this shooting incident – and who has not already been contacted by investigators – is asked to call the Portland Police Bureau's non-emergency number, 503/823-3333.
