An investigation is underway into an officer involved fatal shooting in Southeast Portland Sunday night.

A Gresham Police officer was working with Portland Police in a mutual aid situation taking emergency calls while other Portland Police were working the demonstrations.

They were called to a disturbance around 9:35 p.m. near Southeast 124th and Kelly Street. Callers to 911 said a white man was making threats.

Investigators say the Gresham Officer deployed deadly force and a male subject was shot and pronounced deceased at the scene. The Portland Officers on scene were witnesses and did not deploy deadly force.

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 collaborating on this investigation.

The investigation continues. More information will be provided after the involved subject is identified and next of kin are notified.

This incident was not related to the demonstration event, other than the officers were providing mutual aid assistance, which is why they were in Portland.
