At Portland City Hall, the continuing carnage on outer East Portland streets seems to escape elected officials.

Homicide detectives investigate a fatal shooting in Argay Terrace

Another person died of a gunshot wound this week, again in the Argay Terrace neighborhood; this man perished on February 5.

The location: A half-block south of where Portland’s first gunshot murder took place, just two hours after 2022 began, on January 1. East Portland News was there as the investigation unfolded; to read about it, CLICK HERE.

Officers from East Precinct race north to secure the crime scene, to help North Precinct officers who were stretched thin due to other shootings.

Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers were dispatched to the area of NE 131st Place at Prescott Drive on a “SHOOTING – WITH WEAPON” call.

Because most of the North Precinct officers were assigned to other calls, including another injury shooting, East Precinct officers came to assist.
When officers arrived, they soon found a man clearly suffering gunshot wounds.

The investigation into this deadly shooting continues throughout the night.

Thanks to their training, officers used emergency medic skills by putting a tourniquet on the man’s leg in an attempt to control the profuse bleeding.

Portland Fire & Rescue and ambulance paramedics arrived to continue lifesaving measures; the victim was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he later died.

As at the January 1 deadly shooting, officers closed off the area around the apartment building to begin an investigation. Soon, the PPB Homicide Unit arrived at the crime scene to sift through evidence and to conduct door-to-door interviews with neighbors.

Later that day, PPB officials identified the deceased as 44-year-old Corey M. Eady. The Oregon State Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and determined the cause of his death to be caused by a gunshot wound, and the manner was homicide.
While no arrests have been made, the investigation is continuing.

Shooting victim seeks help at hospital

During the afternoon, another daytime shooting victim is brought into the Emergency Department for treatment.

The following afternoon, on February 6, a gunshot victim was brought by private vehicle to Adventist Medical Center for treatment.

As required by law, Emergency Department staff reported this to the PPB. Officers, who were dispatched to the hospital at 3:04 p.m. that afternoon, learned little from the victim about the shooting, the suspect, or the location, which all too often is the situation.

Traveling swiftly, from one reported shooting to another – like this robbery/shooting call on February 5 at 11:10 p.m., along East Burnside Street at NE 148th Avenue – officers are kept busy trying to keep a lid on violence.

PPB officers were dispatched on 39 “Shots Fired” calls in our neighborhoods. However, it was a busy week for Portland officers outside of our area; they were sent out on 41 such calls. At these incidents, investigating officers may, or may not, find any damage, victim, or evidence of shooting.
