PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police launched an investigation Wednesday night after one person was shot and killed in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood of Southeast Portland.

Officers from the Portland Police Bureau's east precinct and the Focused Intervention Team responded shortly after 9 p.m. to a report of the shooting, heading to Southeast Bush Street near Southeast 134th Avenue, just south of Powell Boulevard.

More than two weeks later, on August 25, Portland police identified the victim as Dejohntae Campbell, 40. An autopsy confirmed that he died as a result of homicide by gunshot wound.

The suspect or suspects fled the scene and there were no immediate arrests. Officers shut down Southeast Bush between Southeast 134th and Southeast 136th while the Portland Police Bureau's homicide unit responded.
