PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Police are investigating a shooting that occurred in southeast Portland Wednesday morning.

At around 4:43 a.m., officers responded to the reports of shots and yelling heard in the 3200 block of Southeast 136th Avenue.

When officers arrived to the scene, they located evidence of gunfire and blood. 

Police said a home believed to be involved was searched. No victims were located inside or at the scene.
