One person held pending further investigation

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Gunfire in the parking lot at Franklin High School left one person with a minor injury, one person detained and prompted the cancellation of a basketball game Saturday night.

The incident happened around 7:40 p.m. as Franklin was playing McDaniel at the school 5405 SE Woodward. A Portland officer assigned to Franklin heard the shots, called for help and began to look into the shooting.

One minor may have been grazed by a bullet but refused medical attention, PPB told KOIN 6 News.

The person detained is being held “pending further investigation,” officials said.

Both the Focused Intervention Team and the Enhanced Community Safety Team rushed to the scene to investigate.

The east side of the Franklin High School parking lot was closed during the initial investigation. Both players and fans at the game left through a different exit with help from officers.
