(PORTLAND) - Earlier today we reported that officers from Central Precinct and the Youth Services Division had taken reports of a suspicious male driving a van (see the earlier flash alert)in the area of Wilson High School. In response to these reports officers were providing extra patrol in the area.

At about 4:00 p.m., an officer assigned to this detail was shot and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The subject who shot the officer was also shot and killed. At this time we do not know if the subject is the suspect from the earlier suspicious person reports.

A firearm was recovered near the subject and the investigation is ongoing.

Portland Police Bureau Detectives responded as did the mayor, the chief, members from the Independent Police Review and the Police Bureau's Internal Affairs Division, the City Attorney's Office, the District Attorney's Office as well as detectives from other police agencies to assist in the investigation. The Portland Police Bureau is committed to transparency and will release additional information as soon as possible. The name of involved officer will not be released for 24-hours to provide time for notification to family.
