Gresham police arrest man accused of shooting at driver with 3 children in car

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Gresham police have arrested a man accused of shooting at a driver with another passenger and three children in his car Thursday evening.

Authorities responded to 3100 NE Cleveland Avenue after receiving multiple 911 calls that a shooting had happened just before 6:30 p.m., officials said.

Columbia CEO Tim Boyle sounds off: ‘If we can’t pick up trash, what the hell can we do?’

The man who was shot had been waiting for a red light at the intersection of Southeast Stark Street and Northeast Cleveland Avenue at the time of the shooting. After fleeing the area, he had another passenger take him to a nearby hospital, according to police.

Officials say the man suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

An investigation found Kelvin Pea, 31, had been trying to shoot a stolen firearm at a separate vehicle that had two people with whom he had an “ongoing dispute.” However, when the driver got away from the scene unharmed, they contacted police.

Anyone with further information about this case is encouraged to contact police.
