Woman charged with murder in downtown Portland homicide

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a 33-year-old woman has been arrested in the shooting death of a woman whose body was found on a downtown Portland sidewalk.

Portland police Sgt. Chris Burley says detectives believe the gun was fired during a disturbance on the sidewalk late Monday.

Sophia Adler has been booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of murder and the case will be presented to a grand jury. She did not have a lawyer as of Tuesday morning.

Burley says the victim’s name will be released when the autopsy is over and next of kin are notified.
