Portland's ECST Requests the Public's Help (Photo) - 08/03/22

Detectives with Portland's Enhanced Community Safety Team are asking for the public's help with a shooting investigation.

On July 31, 2022, at approximately 2:19 am, Central Precinct officers responded to a parking lot in the 400 Block of Northwest Couch Street on the report of a shooting. Once on scene, officers found a man suffering from a serious gunshot wound to the torso. Officers retrieved their Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK) and began administering life-saving emergency medical aid, to include stuffing the gunshot wound with gauze specially designed to induce clotting. The victim was transported by AMR to a local hospital, where he received additional treatment.

Investigators believe numerous people witnessed the shooting but left before officers arrived on scene. If you were in the area of Northwest 4th Avenue and Northwest Couch Street on Sunday, July 31, 2022, at around 2:19 am, and believe you have information about this incident, please contact Detective Sara Clark at sara.clark@portlandoregon.gov (503)823-0422.
