PORTLAND, Ore. — A business owner shot a man after he broke into his business in Northeast Portland's Concordia neighborhood early Monday morning, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported Tuesday.

Police said there was a confrontation between the business owner and the burglary suspect, and the business owner shot him. The suspect was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police did not report any updates about the suspect's medical condition on Tuesday.

Police did not say if the suspect was armed and they haven't named the suspect, the business owner or the business. PPB said the business owner wasn't hurt, stayed at the scene and has cooperated with the investigation.

No charges have been filed as of Tuesday, but PPB said once the investigation is complete, it will be forwarded to the district attorney's office and a decision will be made about any potential charges.

The shooting happened around 5:34 a.m. Monday in the 3600 block of Northeast Columbia Boulevard. One lane of eastbound Northeast Columbia Boulevard was closed between Northeast 34th Avenue and Northeast 38th Avenue during the investigation.

Portland police ask anyone with information about this shooting to contact Detective Brent Christensen at 503-823-2087 or brent.christensen@police.portlandoregon.gov. Please reference Case No. 23-59056.
