PORTLAND, Oregon — Portland police are investigating a shooting that killed a man and wounded a woman in the northeast part of the city.

They found two people inside a vehicle who had been shot. Officers say a man died at the scene and a woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.
