Two suspects detained, no injuries reported

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police have captured at least two people allegedly involved in a burglary and subsequent gunfight in North Portland.

Brooklyn S. Collins was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Interfering with a Police Officer.

Police said Collins, 27, was one of the suspects involved in a burglary in progress in the 8400 block of North Seward Avenue Saturday morning.

While officers were en route to the scene, they learned one of the suspects fled by car with another car following close behind. That’s when gunfire was exchanged between both vehicles, according to PPB.

At around 8:15 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to a call that two cars involved in shots fired had stopped in a parking lot in the 2100 block of NW Gilsan Street. Collins and another suspect were detained with no injuries being reported.

The investigation remains open and police are asking for any witnesses to come forward with details of the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.
