The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to identify the suspect who fired a pellet gun, injuring a two-year-old child.
On Saturday April 10, 2020, at 1:27 p.m., Portland Police responded to a Portland hospital on a report of a two-year-old child injured by a pellet gun. Officers spoke with the victim's father, who told police that at approximately 11:00 a.m., he was taking a walk on North Willis Boulevard near North Peninsular Avenue with his daughter on his shoulders. The child began crying in pain suddenly, and the father discovered there was a small penetration injury to the child's buttocks area.
After consulting with the family pediatrician, the child was driven to an area hospital for treatment. X-rays revealed what appeared to be a pellet projectile lodged an inch deep in the child. Fortunately, the injury was not life threatening to the child.
Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
