PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police believe the shooter who killed a man in southeast Portland may have gotten away in a rental SUV.

Investigators identified the man who was shot and killed at Southeast 112th and Division Street on Wednesday as 21-year-old Kyle Polk.

Emergency crews responded to the scene at 2:33 p.m. Lifesaving efforts were not successful and Polk was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police the shooter or shooters left the area in a larger white SUV. A surveillance camera captured the suspect vehicle as it drove southbound on 112th Avenue from Division Street.

Police said the vehicle appears to be a new Chevy Suburban, GMC Yukon or Cadillac Escalade that was possibly a rental.

Detectives are asking rental car companies in the area to taken note and provide any information to police they might have on similar vehicles that have been recently rented or returned.

No motive has been determined for this shooting. Police said there does not appear to be any connection to the shots fired earlier Wednesday in a Walgreens parking lot at Southeast 122rd and Powell Boulevard.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Detective Brad Clifton at 503-823-0696, brad.clifton@portlandoregon.gov; or Detective Mark Sponhauer at 503-823-0416, mark.sponhauer@portlandoregon.gov.
