Evening Foster-Powell shooting sends victim to hospital
Across the City of Portland, Portland police officers responded to more than a dozen "Shooting-with Weapon" calls on Friday night of May 27. One of those was in the Foster-Powell neighborhood.
At 6:04 p.m., East Precinct officers were sent to a "Disturbance, with shots fired" call near the vacant parking lot at the Vietnamese Grace Bible Church along S.E. 71st Avenue near Rhone Street.
"Officers found a crime scene and recovered evidence," a PPB official reported. "A shooting victim later walked into a hospital — and our preliminary investigation connects that victim to this case."
On June 1 the victim was released from the hospital. The Portland Police Enhanced Community Safety Team [ECST] continues to investigate this shooting.
