Families identify 2 victims of shooting near Rosemary Anderson High School in North Portland (live updates)

Portland Police responded to a shooting Friday afternoon near Rosemary Anderson High School in North Portland. At least three people were taken to Legacy Emanuel Health Center.
Police are searching for suspects in the shooting.
The school is at 717 N. Killingsworth Court. 
5:06 p.m.: Gov. John Kitzhaber tweets: I am saddened by the shooting today in Portland. My heart goes out to those involved, their families, and their communities.
3:52 p.m.: Sgt. Pete Simpson said at a 3:30 p.m. briefing that a dispute led up to Friday's shooting, but it is unknown whether it specifically involved the shooter and the victims is unknown. Simpson said that the shooters may have gang affiliations, but it's unknown whether that had anything to do with the dispute or the shooting, and it doesn't follow that the victims had anything to do with gangs. "They are victims," Simpson said.
Police say they believe there was one shooter accompanied by two others. The suspects fled on foot, Simpson said, heading north on Borthwick and east on Killingsworth. They left the scene quickly and it's unknown whether they had a car nearby. All are at large.

Shooting Near Oregon School Sends 3 to Hospital

Associated Press
Someone opened fire on a group of young people outside an alternative high school Friday, sending three people to the hospital in what is believed to be a gang-related attack, Portland police said.
The victims are students at Rosemary Anderson High School or in related job training programs, police Sgt. Pete Simpson said. A 16-year-old girl was in critical condition, and two males ? ages 17 and 20 ? were in serious condition, police said. A fourth person ? a 19-year-old woman ? was grazed by a bullet but not hospitalized.
The shooting was reported after noon and happened at a street corner outside the school, Simpson said.
[M.N.: at N Killingsworth Street (?North? is worth killings?! - is this the address and the meaning of the intended? message?!) and N Borthwick ave or N Albina ave, which might have the additional meaning.]
Witnesses told police there may have been a dispute outside the school, but police said they didn't know who was involved.
"We don't know what led up to the shooting," Simpson said. "There was some kind of dispute."
The assailant and two other people fled, and the wounded students went to the school for help, he said.
A nearby high school and community college were put on lockdown.
Preliminary information suggests the shooter has gang ties, Simpson said. The Police Bureau's gang unit was deployed in the investigation.
Sierra Smith, a 17-year-old student, told The Oregonian she saw one of the male victims being helped by a teacher inside the school.
"He was laying on the ground. He had blood coming out of his stomach," she said. "It was scary."
Another student, Oliviann Danley, 16, told the newspaper she saw a boy run into the school and yell, "Oh my god, did I just get shot?"
Rosemary Anderson High School serves at-risk students who were expelled or dropped out, or who are homeless or single parents. According to the school's website, 190 students annually are enrolled at the north Portland location. The school also has a second location in Gresham.
Gang violence in Portland isn't a new phenomenon. Some of the violence occurs between rival gangs, but bystanders have also been hurt.
"We've made a lot of progress in addressing the gang problem, but we haven't eradicated it," Mayor Charlie Hales said after shooting Friday. "Today's really a sad reminder that it's still with us."
Portland police have said they saw a spike in gang crime this summer and have complained they don't have adequate resources to address the problem. Recent violence includes a man killed in a drive-by-shooting in June and another man killed in a separate shooting. A 5-year-old boy also was shot in the leg while playing at an apartment complex.
A Multnomah County report on gang activity released in June said crime in the county that includes Portland actually decreased from 2005 to 2012. As inner-city Portland gentrifies, the report said, criminal activity is shifting from northern neighborhoods to areas farther east, including the city of Gresham.
The report identified at least 133 active gangs in the county.
Dani Gonzales, 64, has lived in the neighborhood of Friday's shooting for 25 years and said it's generally safe but there has always been some gang activity.
"Kids just get silly and get crazy ideas. I don't know what goes on in their heads," Gonzales said...

The Year Vladimir Putin Tore Up the Rule Book

1 Share
Moscow, Russia: 
 For years he played the part of the frosty pragmatist, doggedly set on restoring pride and power to a once-great superpower. Then, on February 27, 2014, President Vladimir Putin went rogue.
The decision to send unidentified soldiers into Ukraine's Crimean peninsula leading to its annexation by Russia was far more than an act of aggression against a recalcitrant neighbour.
It marked a direct assault on the foundations of an international system that has largely held since the end of World War II -- reviving the idea of territorial conquest that most had consigned to the historical dustbin.
Putin upended the global rules with considerable chutzpah, sowing just enough uncertainty to keep the world unsure of his intentions or his next move -- or whether he had even done anything wrong in the first place.
Like the judo master he is, Putin used the West's rhetoric of human rights and self-determination against it, deploying a barrage of propaganda first to deny the invasion and then to paint it as a rescue operation to save Crimea from the "fascist junta" that had come to power in Ukraine.
His brazen denials of the facts on the ground caught the world off-guard, but after a decade of controversial interventions in the Middle East it was the West's objections that sounded hypocritical.
The response at home was overwhelming. Putin's approval ratings soared to 90 percent as he oversaw an outpouring of nationalistic pride long buried under the humiliation of the Cold War's conclusion.

DEFEATS INTO VICTORY
With 15 years in power under his belt -- three terms as president and two as prime minister -- the 62-year-old has seen world leaders come and go, including three US presidents and as many French and British leaders.
The controversies have piled up -- the vicious war against Islamic separatists in Chechnya launched weeks after taking power in 1999; the war with Georgia in 2008; the suffocation of independent media, and the steady marginalisation of any political opposition.
2014 could have been a terrible year for Putin.
The pro-European protests in Ukraine threatened to tear yet another ex-Soviet republic from Russia's orbit.
The bargain he had struck with voters at home -- a weakening of political freedoms in exchange for economic stability -- was rattled by collapsing prices for oil, on which Russia so heavily relies.
But instead he turned the looming defeats into a series of propaganda victories.
While the West hopes that currency fluctuations and economic sanctions will scare Putin straight, he takes a longer view, analysts claim.
"In 50 or 100 years historians will not be interested in the ruble's exchange rate," says Konstantin Kalachev from the Political Experts Group in Moscow.
Like all nationalists, the story Putin tells is one of strength mixed with victimhood: the EU is meddling in Russia's backyard, NATO is encircling the country, Western decadence is corrupting Russian decency. And he is fighting back.
At times, the rhetoric took on quasi-religious tones. Crimea was so much more than holiday beaches and naval bases, but a "sacred land", Russia's "Temple on the Mount".
"He sees himself as an eternal leader with a mission to save Russia from the West," says Moscow analyst Maria Lipman.
Many in Europe were shaken, some even labelled him a new Adolf Hitler. Others -- particularly those with an anti-American bent -- looked on starry-eyed at Putin's manly refusal to toe the Western liberal line.

COLD WAR REVISITED
Putin's actions in 2014 also proved a boon for nostalgists.
After a quarter-century of messy little emergencies around the globe, the great games and big power rivalries of the Cold War returned.
Spy agencies scrambled to rehabilitate their Russia desks. Fighter pilots buzzed each other over the Baltic.
NATO suddenly recovered from its long identity crisis, leaping up from the autopsy table and dusting off its repertoire of "This will not stand" histrionics.
The question now is how far it can all go.
Already, Putin appears to have reached the high-water mark. The economy could yet implode. The diplomatic isolation -- laid bare by the embarrassing cold shoulder he received at the G20 summit in Australia last month from which he scuttled home early -- has been greater than he anticipated.
"Putin is a brilliant tactician but he is not a strategist," says Lipman. For the sake of unconditional control at home and sovereignty abroad, he is willing to sacrifice the economy and Russia's development.
Whether that gamble will cement his power or lead to his undoing is the million ruble question -- or maybe the two million ruble question, given that the currency has lost nearly half its value this year.
After a tumultuous year Putin heads into 2015 with a multitude of challenges, but he still has a few cards left up his sleeve.
The Kremlin remains an indispensable player in nuclear talks with Iran and the civil war in Syria. Putin's moves to tie up huge energy deals with Turkey, China and India will keep Russia at the heart of global trade.
And he can also count on an unswerving sense of self-belief, says Kalachev.
"He is betting that the nerves of Western leaders are not as strong as his."
