PORTLAND Two men were injured in what police believe was a gang-related shooting in Northeast Portland Friday night.

On Monday, police said they were still searching for suspects.

Not surprising, according to longtime gang outreach volunteer JohnCanda.

Generally, it means that this isn't over. That retribution or retaliation will ensue and that people don't want the perpetrator caught because they have their own plans, he explained.

The shooting happened just after midnight, at NE 79th Avenue and NE Glisan Street. Investigators found more than 40 bullets, according to Lt. Robert King with Portland police.

Lance Elliott Lewis, 30, and 22-year-old Tracy Lee Horsley II were taken by private vehicle to an area hospital before police arrived at the scene, King said. They suffered non life-threatening injuries.

The nearby Peoples Bar and Grill was hit by gunfire, which broke several windows. The victims were reportedly inside the bar playing pool when the shots were fired.

King said investigators were working to determine whether they were innocent bystanders or were targeted in the shooting. He said the victims were not cooperating with detectives.

A nearby car (pictured) was also heavily damaged by gunfire.

The Portland Police Bureau Gang Enforcement Team was investigating. No suspect information was available and no arrests have been made.

Sgt. Pete Simpson told KGW this was the 73rd gang-related shooting of the year. There were 93 gang-related shootings in all of 2010.
