Investigators with the Portland Police Bureau have identified a suspect who was shot and killed by a Portland mother while the man was climbing into her home early Sunday morning.

Police identified 59-year-old David Daniel McCrary of Gresham, as the man killed in the incident. According to the state medical examiner, McCrary died of a single gunshot wound.

There is no connection between McCrary and the 33-year-old Portland woman, and McCrary did not live in the area where the shooting occurred, though a recent report that he may have been struggling with mental health issue.

The woman found the McCrary in her 10-year-old daughter's bedroom after he broke into the home through a back window.

The woman’s two children were home at the time of the shooting but were in another room. She is cooperating with detectives and asks for privacy during this time.

The case will be reviewed by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
