PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A report of a disturbance involving men with guns outside a Portland apartment building led to a chase last night and the arrest of three men.

Officers recovered a small amount of the drug, a replica gun and multiple knives.

TIGARD, Ore. (AP) – An anonymous benefactor paid off the layaway bills for five customers of the Toys R Us store in Tigard.

The manager told KATU they put accounts in a hat and drew names at random.
