PORTLAND, OR – A man was shot and injured after causing a disturbance in downtown Portland on Thursday night, according to authorities.

Around 9:15 p.m., Portland police officers responded to multiple reports of a man aggressively banging on apartment windows near 600 Northwest Naito Parkway. Upon arrival, officers found the man with a single gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

An early investigation revealed that the man, who had been causing a scene, was confronted by two private security officers who tried to persuade him to leave. Instead, the man charged at another passerby. Despite attempts to retreat, the passerby was forced to defend himself by shooting the man.

After the incident, the security officers seized the gun and held it until police arrived. Authorities confirmed that the passerby legally possessed the concealed firearm and cooperated fully with officials. As a result, he was not immediately charged.

No further details, including the identity of the injured man, have been released at this time.

This incident highlights the unpredictable nature of confrontations in public spaces and the importance of being prepared for self-defense. While the decision to use a firearm is always serious, this case serves as a reminder that legally carrying a concealed weapon can provide protection in dangerous situations.
