PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Authorities say officers are investigating a shooting on the grounds of a southeast Portland hospital that left one person dead. Police say the shooting occurred near Portland Adventist Medical Center. No more details were released. But KPTV reports the medical center said there were no injuries to staff or patients. The station says police responded to reports of a man with a gun about 9:30 last night. The center was secured during a search, but the emergency room stayed open.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The family of a Portland man killed by a hit-and-run driver has held a candlelight vigil at the scene. KGW-TV reports the vigil last night was a sign of solidarity as the family waits for the man who killed Tommy Gann to turn himself in. Portland Police say the 56-year-old Gann was killed Thursday morning by a hit-and-run driver in Southeast Portland at Southeast Holgate Street and 14th Avenue. Fifty-seven-year-old Victorio Nogueda-Berrera is now wanted for felony hit-and-run.

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – A Vancouver woman who admits she damaged her own face with drain cleaner and then made up a story about being attacked has written a book about her experience. The Columbian reports Bethany Storro is scheduled to talk about her book this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” She co-wrote the book, “Facing the Truth,” with Portland burn survivor Monica Krueger. Storro underwent treatment at the Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, Ore.

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – Vancouver police officers and Clark County sheriff’s deputies are working with doctors at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland to improve their health. The Columbian reports the officers have replaced doughnuts with fruit and veggies, have increased their physical activity and are working on stress reduction. The changes are part of a $3 million health study led by Dr. Kerry Kuehl. The researcher has enlisted 130 deputies from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and 80 officers from the Vancouver Police Department for the study, along with two law enforcement agencies in Oregon.
