More than three dozen police and medical units responded to the incident, which closed both directions of the freeway in North Portland. The name of the person killed hasn’t been released. Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a statement Tuesday that detectives would like to talk to anyone who has information about the actions of the suspect before the shooting.
