PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A man was shot and killed by an officer following a disturbance in southeast Portland Sunday evening.
At around 9:35 p.m., a Gresham officer and several Portland officers responded to a disturbance call in the 12400 block of Southeast Kelly Street.
Police said it was reported that a white man was making threats.
According to police, the Gresham officer deployed deadly force and shot the man. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Portland officers were witnesses and did not deploy deadly force, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing, and no further details about the incident have been released.
A woman who lives nearby told FOX 12 what she heard before the shooting.
"We heard people arguing, that's about it. We did hear a car going by really fast, so some people think there's a road but the street ends. Then, other than that we just starting hearing gunfire," said Sarah Espinoza. "Of course with kids being around here that's quite dangerous."
Detectives with the Portland Police Bureau's Homicide Division, along with the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, and the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office are assisting in the investigation.
Police said the incident was not related to protests taking place in Portland Sunday evening.
