Two shootings, two days apart, rattle Brentwood-Darlington
In the first incident, on Monday, August 2, Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officers were dispatched at 11:35 p.m. to a shooting report on S.E. Harney Drive near 58th Avenue.
"But the suspect had fled, prior to police arrival," reported Portland Police spokesperson Lt. Greg Pashley.
"Officers got there and found a person suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, and got that victim medical attention," Pashley told THE BEE. "The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital with what seemed to be a non-life-threatening wound."
Bullets perforate Brentwood-Darlington vehicleThen, two days later and not far from the earlier shooting, at 2:13 a.m., East Precinct officers were sent to another report of "Shots Fired" â€“ this time, along S.E. Flavel Street near 66th Avenue.
Officers didn't find any victim, but they did come across an unoccupied car with fresh bullet holes. "No one was injured in this incident; the suspect or suspects fled prior to police arrival," Lt. Pashley said.
