PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say a 42-year-old man was shot and killed near a busy park in North Portland in the city’s 15th shooting death this year. Police say multiple calls came in at about 2:25 p.m. Monday in the Eliot neighborhood. Arriving officers found a person lying on the sidewalk near Dawson Park who appeared to have been shot, and did not survive. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately clear, but a woman who lives in the area said she heard four gunshots. An investigation is underway. Mayor Ted Wheeler, addressing reporters at the scene, said Portland’s run of recent shootings “is our top public safety concern.”
