PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A confirmed gang-related shooting near a school in Northeast Portland left one woman wounded and police searching for an SUV that sped away.
The shooting happened shortly after noon around the area of the 4900 block of NE 6th Avenue, officials said. Evidence of gunfire was also found on NE Grand between Humboldt Street and Going Street.
Authorities said 20-year-old Annastasia Madison was sitting in King School Park with 2 men when someone in an SUV fired multiple times at the group. She was shot in the hand and is expected to recover.
Relatives of Madison told KOIN 6 News “she’s just fine.” They confirm Madison was shot in the hand and “she doesn’t have any serious injuries.”
Shadriesha Stevens, Madison’s God-sister, said the shooting appears to be random.
“I’m certain that she wasn’t the target,” Stevens says. Law enforcement sources tell KOIN that the suspected target was at the park at the time of the shooting.
According to court records, Madison was indicted by a grand jury on July 15, 2015 along with Ryan O. Davis-Pinney.
Davis and Madison are romantically involved and have a child together, court records show.
The indictment against them says the two “unlawfully and knowingly” tried to get a potential witness to offer false testimony and withhold testimony. The indictment also accuses the two of trying to get the witness to simply not show up to an official proceeding.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Bryan Declercque at 503-823-2056, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gang Enforcement Team is handling both investigations.
