Four dead in Southeast Portland shooting
Four people were killed in a shooting in a Southeast Portland residence late Sunday.
The victims were not immediately identified. No suspect information was released, either.
According to the Portland Police Bureau, at about 10:25 p.m. on June 6, officers responded to the report of a shooting at a residence in the 4000 block of Southeast Boise Street. When they arrived, the officers found four people deceased from apparent gunshot wounds.
Portland police homicide detectives responded to the scene to conduct the investigation. Autopsies will be scheduled to determine cause and manner of death.
On Monday afternoon, Portland police Lt. Greg Pashley told KOIN 6 detectives were still working to determine the involvement of those at the scene:
"There are no known threats to the community generally. But it is not known if everyone involved has been accounted for. Those investigative details may come later.
"Portland police are doing what we can to keep the community safe. The situation that we're in, is, that we're responding to violent crime. Lots of it in Portland."
A neighbor who goes by the name Patia told KOIN 6 News that every once in a while police activity pops up on Southeast Boise, but that Sunday's event was the first time something "big" happened in the four years she has been a resident.
"It's usually safe, we know most of our neighbors," she said. "I want to keep my family safe and make sure our neighbors are safe. So that concerns me of course."
