Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officers arrived at these outer East Portland apartments, and summoned the Bureau’s Gang Enforcement Team investigate.

Witnesses told reporters that four people, one armed with a pistol, pushed their way into an apartment unit, and shot a teenager inside.

With a wounded shooting victim inside, the ambulance prepares to leave for a local hospital.

The 19-year-old was reportedly shot in the pelvis; the youth was taken to a hospital, and is expected to recover.

Officials did say that, at this time, they aren’t considering this to be a gang shooting.
