PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Police are investigating a shooting that left two people dead in northeast Portland Tuesday morning.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact  Detective Stephen Gandy Stephen.Gandy@portlandoregon.gov or Detective Jeffery Pontius Jeffery.Pontius@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0433.

"Detectives have a lot of work to do, on top of all the other cases they're already working," said Portland Police Bureau Lt. Greg Pashley. "You guys know you've reported on two other homicides just over the last few days. It's the same group of detectives that are responding to all of these. So there's no rest for them and our heart always goes out to victims and their families."
