A man was wounded during a home invasion robbery Friday morning in Northeast Portland.
At 5:59 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the area of Northeast 141st Avenue and East Burnside Street on a report of gunfire heard in the area and a person yelling for help.
Officers arrived in the neighborhood and located a 42-year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound in the yard of a home of the 100 block of Northeast 141st Avenue.
The victim was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.
The victim told police he was asleep in his home when an unknown male broke in, armed with a handgun, and demanded money. The victim told police that he didn't have any money so the suspect shot him then left the home.
The suspect was described as an unknown race male wearing a black mask and all black clothing.
Officers, including a Police Canine Unit, searched the area and the home but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description. Robbery detectives have responded to the scene and are continuing the investigation.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at 503-823-1080, firstname.lastname@example.org.
