PORTLAND – Portland police are investigating gunshots fired at two different locations in Northeast Portland Wednesday night, but they don’t know yet if the two may be related.

The first shooting occurred at the McDonald’s restaurant near the intersection of Northeast 39th Avenue and Tillamook Street around 8 p.m. Investigators said they found a bullet hole in one of the windows.

The second shooting occurred at Holladay Park, about two miles away from the McDonald’s. Investigators found a bullet embedded in the brick façade of a building.

Two teens were taken into custody in connection with the Holladay Park shooting. A 14-year-old male was arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm, and a 15-year-old was arrested for a probation violation, according to to Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson.

There were no reports of injuries in either case.
