On Saturday August 12, 2017, at 12:41 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of gunshot heard inside the Crystal Ballroom, located at 1332 West Burnside Street.

As officers were responding to the scene, they received additional information that the shooting was inside the concert venue during a concert event.

Officers arrived at the scene and assisted with evacuations as they checked for any victims. No victims were located and there are no reported injuries.

Preliminary information indicates that the suspect left immediately after the gunfire and that there may have been an argument just prior to the gunshots.

Witnesses have described the suspect as a black male in his 30s, 5'10" tall, wearing a striped shirt.

Officers are checking the area for surveillance video and are asking that anyone with specific suspect information call the Police Non-Emergency Line at 503-823-3333.
