Shootings in SE, NE Portland each claim one life

  • by

Portland police reported finding a person shot on Wednesday about 8 p.m. in Southeast Portland. The person died despite lifesaving attempts, police said.

The identity of the person was not released because next of kin had not yet been notified.

Just before 8 p.m., police responded to the 4200 block of Southeast 37th Avenue, north of Holgate Street, in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood after receiving a report that someone was shot. They located the victim but were not able to save the person. Homicide detectives reported to the scene.

If the death is determined to be a homicide, it will be the 92nd homicide in Portland so far this year. That would match the number of homicides in 2021, which was a record year.

Later Wednesday, about 9 p.m., police responded to the Parkrose neighborhood after receiving reports someone had been shot. Upon arrival to the 11000 block of Northeast Glenn Widing Drive, officers found a victim, who was declared dead.

The area, just east of the Interstate 205 junction with Northeast Airport Way, is home to several hotels. Last weekend, about a mile west, a teenager was shot and killed at a hotel near the Portland International Airport.

The Parkrose shooting would be the 93rd for Portland in 2022 if it is ruled a homicide.
