Man killed in knife fight at Portland mobile home park

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A knife fight at a mobile home park in southeast Portland left one man dead and another injured Thursday.

The stabbing happened at the Scotts View Mobile Home Park on Glencoe Road around 12:30 a.m.

When Clackamas County deputies arrived, they found a "chaotic scene" with conflicting reports of what took place.

Randy Basso, a 47-year-old man from Milwaukie, was found lying on the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and the state medical examiner's office is now investigating the cause and manner of death.

A second man found wounded at the address was identified as 36-year-old Peter Altman, also from Milwaukie.

Deputies recovered two pocket knives at the scene, and it's believed each man had one of the knives.

Paramedics took Altman to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital to be treated. He's in stable condition and is being interviewed by detectives.

Investigators were still sorting out what happened as of 8 a.m.
