PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) – The Portland Police Bureau said multiple people were detained after one man died and another was injured in a shooting in southeast Portland on Friday night.

Police first responded to Powell Boulevard and 112th Avenue shortly after 7 p.m. When they arrived, they found one man dead and another injured. The injured man was taken to a hospital with injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

The suspects left the scene before police were called. The investigation led officers to possible persons of interest near Southeast 120th Avenue north of Powell Blvd. Officers responded and multiple people ran.

Officers setup a perimeter around the area. Because of the belief suspects were armed, the Special Emergency Response Team and Crisis Negotiation Team were called in. Resources were called in from the air and with a K9. Due to the large perimeter, north and central precinct officers were also called in. During the search, multiple people were detained pending further investigation. No one else is being actively sought.

The perimeter was lifted at about 12:45 a.m. The shelter-in-place alert has also been canceled.

Homicide detectives responded to the scene. Anyone with information is asked to contact Michael Schmerber at Michael.Schmerber@portlandoregon.gov or (503) 823-0991; or detective Erik Kammerer at Erik.Kammerer@portlandoregon.gov or (503) 823-0762.

During the investigation, SE 122nd Ave. remains closed between Southeast Clinton Street and Southeast Powell Boulevard.
