PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police in Portland have identified the victims in three apparently unrelated shootings over the weekend, including one man who died.
The Oregonian reports 40-year-old Marcus Deangelo Miller of Portland died of multiple gunshot wounds after a shooting early Saturday morning on a residential street.
A Portland Police Bureau spokesman said it was unknown if past gang ties had anything to do with Miller's death.
In an unrelated incident, 32-year-old Grace Essy of Portland suffered multiple gunshot wounds to her leg in a parking lot early Saturday. Detectives say she was not the intended target.
Also early Saturday, 20-year-old Gabino Acosta of Portland suffered gunshot wounds to the face and shoulder after Acosta and a friend were confronted by two teenagers at a park. Acosta and Essy were treated and released.
