PORTLAND – A shooting at a Portland theater ended a show headlined by rapper The Game.
Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson says officers responded to the Roseland Theater shortly after 10:30 p.m. Thursday. He said no victims were found, and officers worked with venue security to clear the building.
Simpson says there’s information a victim may have left the scene prior to police arrival. He says the department’s Gang Enforcement Team is conducting the investigation.
Ramon Diaz, a 24-year-old concertgoer, told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he heard commotion and a single blast while an opening act performed. He said people then ran for the exit.
