Shooting Outside High School Basketball Game

Shots were fired outside of a basketball event at Franklin High School, 5405 Southeast Woodward Street, and one juvenile suffered a minor injury.

On Saturday, January 7, 2023 at 7:39 p.m., an officer who was working an overtime detail at Franklin High School heard shots being fired outside of the building. The officer immediately radioed for assistance while responding to investigate. Officers and sergeants from East Precinct, Focused Intervention Team, K9 Unit, and Air Support Unit responded. The first assisting units arrived on scene within three minutes.

The officers found evidence of gunfire in the parking lot on the east side of the building. They found one juvenile with a possible graze wound injury, but the juvenile declined medical attention.

A person was detained by Focused Intervention Team officers off campus, some distance from the shooting. The 15-year-old boy was booked at Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center on an unrelated arrest warrant and a new charge of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. The investigation is continuing by ECST detectives.

If anyone has information about this incident, please e-mail attention: ECST and reference case number 23-6295. Or send an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers of Oregon.
