OAK GROVE, Ore. — Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed in the Portland, Oregon suburb of Oak Grove on Saturday night.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s office says a suspect in the case was arrested early Sunday, but authorities have not released that person’s name.

Deputies were called to the scene just before 8 p.m. Saturday when someone called 911 to report a disturbance near an intersection along Oregon Highway 99E. Additional callers told emergency workers that the disturbance had escalated to a shooting.

When deputies arrived, they found one man dead and the suspect gone. They did find several witnesses to the shooting, however.

The victim’s name has not yet been released.
