PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A shooting at a Gresham gas station left two people hurt late Wednesday night, police confirmed.

A witness who did not want to go on camera told KOIN 6 the shooting started around 10:30 p.m. at a gas station at Southeast 181st Avenue and Burnside. She said she heard at least five to six shots fired, and that police arrived within minutes.

Gresham police said two Black men were rushed to a hospital with serious injuries. According to investigators, the shooting happened shortly after the two men drove a dark-colored 4-door sedan into the gas station lot and stopped near a pump. Police said both men were still inside the car when shots were fired.

One man who worked at the gas station told reporters the situation was “concerning.”

At one point, KOIN reporters on the scene counted at least 21 evidence markers as police were investigating. 

Authorities have not yet determined a motive and haven’t ruled out gang activity.
