The Portland Police Bureau's Gang Enforcement Team (GET) is investigating three overnight shootings that occurred in various neighborhoods in Northeast Portland. One person was injured in one of the shootings but it's unclear if any of these shootings are related to one another.

On Saturday December 26, 2015, at 12:07 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of gunfire in the area of Northeast 148th Avenue and Halsey Street. Officers arrived in the area and located evidence of gunfire but did not locate any gunshot victims. Witnesses reported seeing gunfire come from an occupant of one vehicle towards the occupants of another vehicle.

A short time later a 23-year-old male victim suffering a non-life-threatening gunshot wound arrived at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. The victim is known to police as a gang associate and he did not cooperate with officers at the hospital.

At 3:14 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to numerous reports of gunfire at North Haight Avenue and Fremont Street. Officers arrived in the area and did not locate any gunshot victims. Officers located several parked cars that sustained damage from gunfire. Later in the morning, a resident in the 3500 block of North Haight Avenue reported to police that a bullet entered their home and traveled through a children's playroom. Nobody in the home was injured by the shooting.

At 5:00 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 2700 block of Northeast Saratoga Street on the report that at approximately 4:40 a.m., someone fired numerous rounds from a handgun towards the caller. The caller described the suspect at an unknown race male with dread-locked hair and wearing dark clothing.

Officers arrived in the area and located evidence of gunfire and a parked vehicle with bullet damage. No gunshot victims were located in the area.
