Police ID man fatally shot in Portland; neighbors say scene was chaotic


PORTLAND, Oregon — Police have identified a man fatally shot in a northeast Portland neighborhood as 30-year-old Stephen McCorvey.

A 41-year-old woman was wounded in the Wednesday night gunfire. Her name has not been released.

Neighbors interviewed by The Oregonian (http://is.gd/g9AG5w ) described a chaotic scene that started with an argument between McCorvey and two men.

McCorvey then joined a woman in a car that quickly went in reverse. One of the men who had been arguing with McCorvey opened fire.

Several neighbors said they heard at least nine shots.

Investigators have not made an arrest or released much information. Sgt. Pete Simpson says detectives have yet to find evidence the violence was gang-related.
