PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man is dead after a shooting at an apartment complex in Gresham Wednesday night.
Officers told KOIN 6 they found the man lying dead in the complex lot near SE Yamhill and 119th St. after responding to reports of gunfire in the area.
Neighbor Mark Dikeman says he was among those who called police after he heard several shots ring out at about 5:30 p.m.
Dikeman claims he then saw two men run from the complex, but police tell KOIN 6 that no one has currently been charged in relation to the man’s death.
This shooting happened on the same street where 55-year-old Leonard Eugene Madden was shot and killed last week.
“The other homicide was just across the street across 190th, but it was on Yamhill. Like everywhere else in the Metro area, we’re seeing a kind of an uptick in everything everywhere,” said Gresham police officer Adam Baker.
The shooting is now being investigated by the East County Major Crimes Team.
Gresham police said they plan to release the name and age of the man killed Thursday morning, after the autopsy is complete.
