Two dead in apparent murder-suicide

Police responded to gunshots in apparent murder-suicide attempt 3300 block of Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard overnight.

SERT officers made entry into an apartment and discovered a deceased adult female and an adult male suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The male was still alive and was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to life-threatening injuries. He died at the hospital.

The names of the victims were not immediately available.

Homicide Detectives and Criminalists from the Forensic Evidence Division have been called to the scene to begin a death investigation. An autopsy on the adult female will be performed later by the Oregon State Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.

There is not believed to be any ongoing risk to the neighborhood.
