PORTLAND -- Several gunshots were fired at a man riding his bicycle in Northeast Portland on Monday, but no one was injured.

Police were called to the area of NE 15th & Jarrett just before 4:30 p.m., after they received several calls of gunfire in the area.  Northeast 15th Avenue was closed from Killingsworth to Ainsworth as crews investigated.

Witnesses said a car pulled up and someone inside it shot at the man, who ran off and later returned to collect his bicycle.

There's no word of an arrest at this point, and it's unclear what prompted the shooting.
