PORTLAND — Portland police say a third suspect has been arrested in their investigation of a shooting outside an alternative Portland High School that injured four young people.

The arrest came after a chase late Tuesday in Marion County, about 40 miles south of Portland.

Police say the suspect is 16 years old.

The shooting appears to be related to gang activity, and the Police Bureau’s gang squad is handling the investigation.

One victim, 16-year-old Taylor Michelle Zimmers, remains hospitalized in fair condition. Two others have been discharged. A fourth teenager was grazed and treated at the scene Friday outside the north Portland school.

The three suspects are being held on warrants for probation violations. Police say charges in the shooting are expected soon.
