Four suspsects in a shooting incident on Woodstock Blvd.; two were arrested, and one of them was wounded

DAVID F. ASHTON - Investigators found - and carefully marked - substantial evidence of shots having been fired near S.E. 74th and Woodstock Boulevard. Gunshots heard at about 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning, July 27, brought East Precinct officers to S.E. Woodstock Boulevard near 74th Avenue.

When officers found a car in the area they believed may have been involved in the shooting, and attempted to stop it, the driver took off.

After a brief 1.4 mile pursuit, the vehicle came to a stop near S.E. 100th Avenue and Henry Street. Four people ran from the car as soon as it stopped. Two of the suspects were taken into custody by officers; and, the other two fled into the neighborhood and officers did not find them.

Officers soon realized that one those from the car that they'd taken into custody had been shot in the original incident, and called for an ambulance; the wounded person was sent to a local hospital by ambulance, with a non-life-threatening wound.

After searching the area near where the car stopped, officers recovered a firearm.

Back at the original crime scene, officers found 24 spent bullet cartridge casings, and learned that at least one vehicle that had been struck by gunfire. The PPB Enhanced Community Safety Team responded to assist in the investigation.
