PORTLAND — A window at the Shell gas station on Southeast 82nd and Foster Road was shot out on Tuesday morning.  Two other business were also hit with bullets, Automotive Outfitters and Taco Time.

KXL’s Jim Ferretti says he heard five quick shots as he drove by.  He found a shattered window on the back side of the building.  It does not appear that anyone was injured.

“I heard about five gunshots in my office right behind here.  Don’t know if they were aiming at somebody or something,” said a neighbor.

Police are looking for an African-American man who was wearing blue pants and a grey sweatshirt.  He was seen carrying a blue bag as he ran away.  The shots may have been fired during a dispute between two men.  Investigators with the Gang Enforcement Team are on the case.
