Two men shot Saturday evening

Police are investigating whether two men wounded Saturday evening were shot in the same gang-related incident.

The names of the victims were not immediately released. Their wounds are described as non-life-threatening.

According to police, at 7:07 p.m. on Sept. 13, East Precinct officers responded to an apartment complex in the 15600 block of Southeast Division Street on the report of a shooting.

When the officers arrived in the area, they learned that an 18-year-old male was suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment.

According to police, preliminary information indicates that the shooting is gang-related and two vehicles possibly fled the scene after the shooting. It is not clear if this was a drive-by shooting.

While officers began investigating this shooting, a second gunshot victim arrived by private car at Portland Adventist hospital. The adult male is described as having non-life-threatening injuries. Police say it is not clear at this point if he is related to the shooting on Southeast Division Street.

The Gang Enforcement Team responded to investigate.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call the Police Non-Emergency Line at (503) 823-3333.
