PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Portland police gang enforcement team is investigating the shooting of a 20-year-old man as he was sitting in a car in front of King School in northeast Portland. A suspect wearing dark clothing was seen running away through King School Park just after midnight. Police say the victim suffered life-threatening injuries.

GLADSTONE, Ore. (AP) – Authorities are investigating the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old man by a police officer in the south Portland suburb of Gladstone. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s office released few details of the shooting.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – A court document says a 12-year-old boy told police that he awoke during a sleepover at a Woodburn, Ore., priest’s house to find the man touching him. The Oregonian reports that 46-year-old Rev. Angel Perez made an initial appearance in court yesterday on sexual abuse and other charges.
