PORTLAND, Ore. (KGW News) - Customers waiting for the downtown Nike store to open Saturday for a shoe release scattered after someone in a red Camry drove by and fired a shot into the air, according Portland police.
The newer red Camry sped away about 8:30 a.m. from the store at 638 5th Ave. Someone in the crowd ran after it. That person fired a number of rounds at the car when it reached Southwest Fourth Avenue and Washington Street, police said.
No injuries have been reported. The man who fired the multiple shots and the car he fired at have not been located.
Officers found evidence of gunfire at 4th and Washington, including rounds that hit a building near the intersection.
Ahmed Jordan of Petra Cuisine was doing some paperwork when "all of a sudden, I hear three shots, two loud."
Charles Willcoxen saw what happened from Peterson's Grocery Store.
"Across the street there, he stopped, quick about face," he told our news partner, KGW. "About that time, the red car went by and he started shooting."
Jordan says he's heard shot in this downtown area before, but never this close.
"It was shocking," he said. "Really scary."
Investigators seek surveillance cam videos of the area and should contact the Gang Enforcement Team at 503-823-4106.
Bureau spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley said downtown gunfire is "extremely rare" but this incidents was "still very alarming."
