On Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 10:01p.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a shooting in a bar in the 13900 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard. When officers arrived they found a chaotic scene, with numerous witnesses and three people injured. One adult male had a gunshot wound to the chest. Another adult male was hit in the upper leg and an adult female was shot in the hip. Officers applied first aid, including at least one tourniquet, to the victims until Portland Fire and Rescue and American Medical Response took over care. The three victims were transported to a hospital by ambulance. One male remains in critical condition.
People in the bar tackled the suspect, a male, and tried to hold him down until police arrived, but he was able to get up and escape. A patron did wrestle away the gun and passed it along to police. It was placed in evidence (photo).
