Portland has seen an increase in shootings and gun violence over the past three years.

Over those three years, Portland saw a 144% increase in its homicide count and a 241% increase in non-fatal shootings that resulted in injury. When compared to five "peer comparison cities" — Minneapolis, Atlanta, San Francisco, Denver and Nashville — the report found that Portland had the largest increase in its homicide rate, at 207%.
