In Portland, police are seeing gang violence almost every day, often with shootings. They are looking for volunteers to help. Volunteers are still wanted to help keep the peace in the wake of increasing gang violence, and including over 40 shootings already this year. And for at least one member of this group, there’s a personal connection.  Roy Washington is the foster dad of 14-year old Shiloh Hampton, who died in April, after being shot near Lloyd Center: “We come to keep peace, or help provide peace around our young people.” Greeting those they come across with a smile and handshake; volunteers are hitting the hot spots, where young people hang out. Police have responded to a spike in gang shooting, with “Operation Cool Down”, shifting officers to beef up the gang unit.  On Saturday night in Portland, there were three suspected gang shootings.
