PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – An early Wednesday morning shooting that left one man wounded has Portland’s gang investigators searching for the suspect.

Shots were fired around 2:10 a.m. at SW 3rd and West Burnside, PPB Sgt. Pete Simpson said. Officers arrived and found a man down and rushed him to a hospital. He’s expected to survive.

Police believe there may have been some kind of argument leading up to the shooting.

Investigators haven’t confirmed the shooting was gang-related even though the Gang Enforcement Team is on the case.
