Portland Surpasses One-Thousand Shootings For 2021

(Portland, OR) -- Portland is marking a grim new milestone in its ongoing gun violence crisis. Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell announced on Twitter Saturday that the city has now seen over one-thousand shootings since the year began. That's more than the nearly 900 shootings reported in Portland in all of last year and the 380 shootings reported in 2019. Lovell called the city's gun violence a "terrible problem," saying too many shootings have "prematurely ended lives and caused injury."
