KGW reports Man Shot Downtown

KGW (reg. required) reports that police arrested a 56 year old man today after he shot a 41 year old man. No names released, but the two were arguing when the suspect pulled a gun and shot the other guy.

Some people said they thought the victim was asking for money, but KGW reports Sgt. Brian Schmautz saying, “I have no information from detectives that would indicate that this incident involves aggressive panhandling.”

Maria Hoover, a waitress at the store, said she was upset that kids wanting to see Santa Claus at the Meier & Frank would have to step outside the doors and walk past a crime scene. ìThey have to be surrounded by this? What kind of Christmas spirit is that?î Hoover said.

UPDATE: Portland Police Bureau posts a notice about the shooting.
