Two teens in Portland are charged with attempted murder and other crimes after police found them with multiple weapons, ammunition, and body armor after a shooting.
According to the Portland Police Bureau, the investigation started at 9:45 p.m. on February 7 when officers from the East Precinct were sent to the 8100 block of Southeast Knight Street in response to a report of shots fired. People who called 911 said they heard gunfire and thought someone might have been hit.
When the police arrived, they didn’t find anyone who was hurt. But they did find evidence of a shooting and located bullet holes in several cars that were not occupied. The Focused Intervention Team (FIT) and the Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) came to the crime scene to process it and take over the investigation.
The investigation is still going on in the given cases…….

Serious goof in last paragraph. I sincerely doubt that the “child” was born at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Facility 🤦🏼♂️
