Gang enforcement officers and Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s help to solve a gang-related shooting at a Northeast Portland nightclub last month. Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau, said the shooting occurred in the early morning hours of May 6 at the 715 Inn, at 715 Northeast Broadway. A woman inside the club, 60-year-old Christine Anderson, was struck once in the chest; she survived her wound. Witnesses told police that someone outside the club began shooting at around 2:15 a.m., striking a Jeep parked outside. A bullet traveled through a window, striking Anderson. Police do not think Anderson was the intended target, and believe the shooter may have been aiming at someone else, perhaps a gang associate, inside the club. It’s unknown if the shooter was in a car or on foot. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in this case; callers will remain anonymous.
