Police investigate shooting during concert at Crystal Ballroom; no injuries


Police responded to the report of a gunshot heard inside the Crystal Ballroom on West Burnside street early Saturday morning around 12:40 AM.

As officers were responding to the scene, they learned that the shooting happened inside the concert venue during a show.

Officers assisted with evacuations and checked for any victims.

Police say no victims were located and there were no reported injuries.

Preliminary information indicates the suspect left immediately after the gunfire, and that there may have been an argument just before the gunshots, police say.

Witnesses described the suspect as a black man in his 30s, 5'10" tall and wearing a striped shirt.

Officers are checking the area for surveillance video, and are asking anyone with specific information to call the police non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

DJ Quick & Scarface were performing at the Crystal Ballroom Friday night.
