PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say one person was grazed by a bullet when 35 gunshots were fired at a Portland hotel.

Portland police say the shots were fired after a car pulled up at the Lloyd Center Residence Inn Marriott at 1710 Northeast Multnomah Street at about 2:30 a.m. Friday.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://goo.gl/JM5fwo ) the shooting happened in the back of the property.

Portland Police Sgt. Scott Montgomery says the bullet that entered a room grazed the leg of a woman visiting from Taiwan. Montgomery says she wasn’t seriously injured.

Police suspect the shooting is gang-related.

The city’s police gang unit responded to 193 gang shootings, stabbings and assaults in 2015, police say, up from 109 in 2014.
