This investigation remains open and active.

Another incident in the early hours of New Year’s Day left about 90 casings after a shooting in Centennial District, officials said.

Targeted Response Team coming soon

“There is no argument that gun violence is currently a huge problem in the city of Porltand and I can say that the officers and detectives and all of us at PPB want this to end as much as anyone “said the sergeant. Kevin Allen told KOIN 6 News. “It’s a huge problem right now and we want to see it solved and we have a plan in place to do our part to try to solve it.”

This plan consists of deploying the targeted intervention team.

“We have the Targeted Response Team coming in,” Allen said. “These officers are preparing to transfer to this new team and they will undergo additional training. Then they will hit the streets here next month.

Allen is aware that FIT will not solve everything.

“We are basically talking about 12 officers and a few sergeants. They will not be able to solve this problem overnight,” he said. “But we know we are playing a part in the fight against gun violence and we think it’s a good start.”
