Shooting Investigation Underway In The Humboldt Neighborhood, No Injuries Reported - 02/07/19

On Thursday, February 7th, 2019, at 1:09 p.m., officers assigned to the Portland Police Bureau's North Precinct responded to the area of North Commercial Avenue and North Killingsworth Street on reports of a shooting. Numerous teens were reported to have run out of the area after the shooting. Four schools in the area were placed in lockout status.

Officers arrived in the area and searched for suspects and anyone injured by gunfire. No suspects or victims of gunfire were located. No one believed to have suffered injuries as a result of this shooting has arrived at local area hospitals. As officers continued the investigation, they canvassed the area and located evidence of gunfire.

Members of the Portland Police Bureau Tactical Operation Division's Gun Violence Response Team (GVRT) responded to assume the investigation. Schools resumed normal operations about forty minutes after the initial request was given to go into lockout status.

Anyone who witnessed this shooting or who possesses video surveillance footage of the shooting is asked to contact GVRT at 503-823-4106.
