Police investigate shots fired near Portland convenience store

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police are looking for a man who they said fired several shots outside a North Portland convenience store Saturday night.

It happened at the Lucky Mart, located at 5287 North Lombard Street, at around 8:45 p.m., police said.

The store clerk told officers that earlier Saturday he confronted a young black woman who he said had previously shoplifted from the store. The woman began throwing things around the store and knocked over a TV that landed on the clerk’s infant son.

The boy was not hurt, police said. The woman left the store.

Later, the clerk said a black man came to the store claiming to be the woman’s brother. The two got into a physical confrontation, according to police, and the man fired several shots into the air after leaving the store.

Police did not find the suspect or any damage from the gunfire. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 503-823-0400.
