Portland police are looking for a man they believe fired several gunshots outside an apartment complex in East Deering on Sunday morning, the 11th shots-fired incident since October.

The shooting was reported about 9 a.m. Sunday morning on Frigate Lane off Eben Hill Drive. Witnesses said a man fired multiple rounds from in and around the doorway to one apartment. He then ran off and got into a gold sedan with tinted windows.

Police said they spoke with multiple witnesses and collected evidence, but they did not specify how many rounds were fired or if they recovered shell casings from the scene.

No one was injured in the gunfire, said David Singer, a spokesman for Portland Police. He declined to say whether rounds struck any buildings or property.

Crime overall in Portland declined in 2020 and the downward trend has continued this year, but incidents involving gunfire have increased, with 11 shots-fired incidents in the past 10 months.

Only one person was injured in those earlier cases – a man was shot twice in the arm in May, police said. In some other cases, officers found bullet holes in buildings or a car. In most cases, they recovered two to 10 shell casings from the scene.

Police arrested a Westbrook man in July for his alleged involvement in a drive-by shooting near the intersection of Forest Avenue and Riverton Drive. Tony Semuhumuza, 23, was charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, a Class C felony, and is due in court on Oct. 7.

No arrests have been made in the other 10 incidents. Police are asking anyone with information about the shootings to call investigators at 207-874-8584.
