PORTLAND, Oregon - On Saturday evening at 10:41 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the area of Southeast 162nd Avenue and Stark Street after multiple reports of gunfire, including at least one victim inside a building.

Officers arrived in the area and located one gunshot victim, who was transported by ambulance to a Portland hospital. The victim's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Officers located numerous witnesses at the scene and learned that the shooting appeared to be connected with an event or a party at the Rosewood Initiative Community Center, located at 16126 Southeast Stark Street.

As officers were working to contain the area, two additional gunshot victims arrived at a Portland hospital by private vehicle. Neither victim's injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

At this point, there have been no arrests and there is little suspect information or what led to the shooting.

Gresham Police Department officers and Multnomah County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene and assisted with the investigation.
