Police Respond to Multiple Shots Fired at Kennedy Park Last Night; No Injuries


Kennedy Park Near Where the Gunshots Occurred.

On Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at 10:00 pm., an officer on patrol in East Bayside heard multiple gunshots coming from the area of Kennedy Park.  As he made his way toward the gunfire, the Portland Regional Communications Center received multiple calls reporting gunshots in the area of Kennedy Park.

Responding officers found evidence that bullets had been fired through windows and walls of Kennedy Park.  An occupant inside the residence said there was a knock on the door and when they looked out a window they saw a black male wearing a white T-shirt and black leather jacket standing in front of the residence.  When they began to make contact with him, he raised a rifle and fired multiple rounds at them through a window above the staircase to the front door.

The subject fled in a silver or gray sedan that was occupied by a second black male who was wearing a red jacket with a fur-lined hood.

None of the occupants of the apartment were struck by the gunfire.  Bullets were found in bedrooms including a bedroom where a one-year-old child sleeps in a crib.

Investigations are urging anyone with knowledge of the incident to please call (207) 874-8575.
