PORTLAND – A 15-year-old was shot early Sunday morning in Southeast Portland after a bullet went into his downstairs apartment, police said.
Shortly after 2 a.m. officers were flagged down about the teen who was shot in the 13800 block of Southeast Stark Street, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.
Officers learned there was gunfire outside the apartment and the victim did not appear to be the intended target, Simpson said.
Police said the people who live the apartment above the victim are gang associates, but the teen is not associated with gangs.
Portland police’s Gang Enforcement Team is investigating.
