PORTLAND, Oregon — A man was shot and killed Saturday morning in the Parkrose neighborhood in Northeast Portland.

Just before 6:30 a.m., Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers responded to a call of someone who'd been shot at 11300 NE Sandy Blvd near Northeast 112th Avenue. 

When police arrived, they found 34-year-old Joseph Douglas Dewey who was unresponsive. Officers attempted life-saving measures but said Dewey died on scene.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner (OSME) determined that Dewey died of a gunshot wound. His death has been ruled a homicide.

No arrests have been made and there is no suspect information available at this time.

At the time, PPB was investigating two other shootings, including one downtown that left a woman dead and at least six other people injured. Police said the three shootings stretched their investigative resources thin. 

Homicide detectives are investigating. If anyone has information about this incident, please contact Det. Shaye Samora at Shaye.Samora@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0768 or Det. Erik Kammerer at Erik.Kammerer@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0762.
