PPB Reports 7 Shootings in One Day
Portland patrol resources drained

The Portland Police Bureau's Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) has reported there were seven shootings in almost 15 hours, beginning just after 2 a.m. through 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.

The first shooting occurred at 2: 20 a.m. at SE 67th/SE Ogden Street. Officers responded to reports from several callers regarding multiple shots fired. More than 10 cartridge casings were located. No victims or related property damage was located. Case #21-263320

A couple hours later at 4:30 p.m., at NE 82nd/NE Sandy Blvd, officers responded and learned an individual was shot and wounded. The victim suffered a non-life threatening injury. Officers extensively canvassed the area, but are uncertain exactly where this incident occurred, but believe it was near the Grotto, which is located at 8840 NE Skidmore Street. Case #21-263395

Later in the morning, at 11:09 a.m., officers responded to NE Prescott/NE Sandy Blvd on a shots fired call. Officers discovered multiple cartridge casings in the area. Preliminary information suggests that this was a drive-by shooting. There were no known injuries at this time. Case #21-263604

At 1:54 p.m., Officers responded to a call of an individual with a gunshot wound who walked into a local hospital. The victim suffered a non-life threatening injury. Based on preliminary investigation, the Officers believe the shooting occurred in the 500 Block of NE Multnomah Street. Case #21-263753

Just over an hour later at 3:07 p.m., another individual walked into a hospital with a gunshot wound. The victim was uncooperative with police and suffered a non-life threatening injury.

Shortly after at 6:50 p.m., officers responded to the 5900 block of SE 72nd Avenue on numerous reports of shots fired. Officers located several cartridge casings at the crime scene. A related unoccupied stolen vehicle was located a short distance away after it was involved in a traffic crash. There were no known injuries reported. Case #21-264061

These incidents required significant numbers of officers, sergeants, detectives, and criminalists to investigate, and drained resources for patrol.

These shootings are ongoing investigations and any additional information will be released at the direction of ECST.
