Crisis Negotiators at North Portland Standoff

Portland Police say the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) are responding to a shots fired call in the 4600 block of North Houghton Street, in North Portland.

Someone possibly involved in the shooting ran into a garage. Officers have a perimeter around the location. There are no known shooting victims. Some streets around the block are closed.

Portland Police say officers on patrol heard gunshots at about 3:15 this morning, and they say a person running. Sergeant Kevin Allen with Portland Police say they’ve got a one block area, blocked off right now.

“The folks that are living in the area as far as I know have all been contacted, or at least most of them have been contacted and made aware of what’s going on. There’s no evacuation, it’s just kind of a shelter in place situation,” said Allen.

He says the person is armed and possibly dangerous.
