Saturday night, Portland Police were called to Southwest Naito Parkway and Salmon Street on the report of two people injured by gunfire.

Officers arrived and located a third victim suffering a gunshot wound and a large crowd of people, many of them gang affiliates in line to attend a private party on the Portland Spirit.

Three males have been transported from the scene to Portland hospitals. Two have traumatic but not believed to be life-threatening injuries and the third has a serious but not life-threatening injury.

Preliminary information indicates that three suspects ran from the scene westbound on Salmon Street into the Downtown core.

The suspects are described as African American males, late teens to early 20s, medium height, medium weight, wearing all white clothes.

The area of Salmon Springs to the Portland Spirit is closed as a crime scene.

Based on the initial investigation it appears this shooting is gang-related.
