PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police have arrested three young men for investigation of murder in a fatal shooting at a home in northeast Portland.

An autopsy showed he died of multiple gunshot wounds. Police continue to investigate the circumstances of the shooting.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Portland opera singer shot multiple times while driving on Interstate 205 says he does not think the person who pulled the trigger is an acquaintance. Brian Tierney is recovering from life-threatening wounds sustained in the mysterious shooting that occurred six weeks ago. The 29-year-old appeared at a press conference yesterday to thank the community for its support and to urge people to come forward with tips. Tierney declined to say much about what happened.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Two more public buildings in Portland have received envelopes containing white powder, for a total of six in two weeks. The FBI says none of the powder has proven hazardous. The latest suspicious letters arrived yesterday at two downtown office buildings. An FBI spokeswoman says the agency is investigating and trying to determine whether the letters are related. The Portland Fire Bureau conducted field tests, and the FBI has sent the envelopes on to a state lab for more testing.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – Oregon is taking its experiment with iPad voting to the whole state. Secretary of State Kate Brown’s office said yesterday that all 36 counties will have at least one iPad and printer to help disabled voters mark a ballot in next week’s primary. Officials say nearly 200 voters used an iPad to mark ballots in a pilot project limited to a five-county special election. The tablets are supposed to make it easier for voters to mark their ballot privately if they can’t use the traditional pen and paper.
