>Portland Police are searching for a suspect who shot a police vehicle with a pellet gun Saturday night, according to Portland Police Bureau spokeswoman Detective Mary Wheat.
Police responded to Northwest Skyline Boulevard north of Northwest Cornell Road about 11 p.m. Saturday after a citizen’s car was struck in the area.
A Portland police car was hit by a pellet round later that night, and additional officers, including a K-9 unit, arrived and set up a large perimeter. No suspects were found, but officers found the pellet gun that police believe was used during the shooting. (8/1/2010)
