PORTLAND, Ore. – A man with a gunshot wound arrived at a Portland hospital Thursday night, just minutes after gunfire was reported in North Portland.

The incidents sparked an investigation but police said they do not have any suspect information at this time.

The gunfire was reported just before 9 p.m., in the area of North Swenson Street and Iris Way. Officers arrived at the scene and found evidence of gunfire and blood, but no victims, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau.

Then just after 9 p.m. a man in his 20s arrived at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with a gunshot wound. It did not appear to be a life-threatening injury, Simpson said.
