PORTLAND, Oregon - The search for suspects who fired at the police has concluded and the neighborhood shelter in place order has been lifted. The suspects, a male and a female, were not located and are no longer believed to be in the area. The perimeter was cleared shortly after 9:00p.m.

The investigation revealed that at least one round struck a Portland Police vehicle, damaging the passenger side rear view mirror (photo). Multiple shell casings were found at the scene (photo) and seized as evidence. No officer was injured. No shots were fired by police.

A search is underway in the Hazelwood neighborhood for a suspect who may have fired a gun while being pursued by officers, prompting a callout of the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT).

On Saturday, November 13, 2021 at 5:26p.m., Portland Police officers initiated a traffic stop in the area of Northeast 92nd Avenue and Northeast Halsey Street on a wanted suspect. The suspect eluded officers in the vehicle. The vehicle's tires were deflated with spike strips, and at least two occupants jumped out and ran. As the suspects ran, officers heard shots fired. No officer was injured. Officers have set up a perimeter and activated SERT and CNT.

The case is being investigated by detectives. If anyone has information about this case please e-mail crimetips@portlandoregon.gov and reference case number 21-318162.
