On Friday, August 5, 2022 at 2:01a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to a report of possibly armed individuals in the area of Northwest 4th Avenue and Northwest Davis Street. The ASU responded to assist and, while overhead, captured a shooting in progress on video. 

When ground units arrived, they believed that there were possibly injured victims, however they later determined they were just on the ground trying to avoid the gunfire and were not hurt. 

Officers, assisted by the Air Support Unit, arrested two suspects nearby. Officers from the Focused Intervention Team (FIT) responded to assist with the investigation. Two guns were seized as evidence, and 88 cartridge casings. One car was towed as evidence. At least 1 building and several cars were damaged by gunfire. 

Travis A. Gaters III, 29, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Possession of a Loaded Firearm in the City (City Code), Disorderly Conduct, and Reckless Endangering.

Tamarjay D. Polk, 24, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Reckless Endangering, Discharging a Firearm in the city (City Code), and Disorderly Conduct. 

Additional charges are possible after more investigation is done. Additional suspects are being sought. No suspect descriptions are being released. FIT and Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) investigators are working on the case. No additional information is available at this time.
