PORTLAND, Ore. — Between Friday night and early Sunday morning, there were 14 shootings in Portland and investigators believe some of them were related. One person was killed in the city’s 67th homicide of the year and four others were wounded. In total, at least 151 shell casings were recovered.
“These shootings placed a significant strain on resources during that timeframe. At one of the shootings, a sergeant was left to process one of the crime scenes alone.
