“While this was a busy shift, it is by no means unique,” the Portland Police Department stated in a written statement. But there has been a slight decrease in gun violence in Portland recently, following a similar nationwide pattern.
The Portland Police Bureau reports that there have been 382 gunshots so far this year, resulting in 120 injuries and ten fatalities (not counting suicides). At this time last year, 528 shootings had already occurred in the city, resulting in the injuries or deaths of 166 persons.
Even homicide rates are down somewhat from this time last year. The death toll in Portland is currently at 34, down from 37 in 2022. According to preliminary FBI crime data, crime rates have recently declined after rising sharply in Oregon during the epidemic.
