Portland Police were near 141st and SE Division Friday afternoon when they heard gunfire at the Amber Court apartments.
They learned a woman had been shot and when officers tried to approach the apartment they heard more gunfire, so they pulled back and the Special Emergency Response Team was called to clear the apartment.
Crisis Negotiators attempted to make contact with someone inside the apartment, but did not receive any response.
Due to the concern over the welfare of the victim, SERT launched several tear gas rounds into the residence and immediately entered the premises to rescue the victim.
SERT officers located the female victim and a male, both deceased, inside the residence.
No officers fired gunshots during this incident.
Preliminary information indicates that the shooting is a domestic violence murder suicide.
