PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police are investigating whether a homicide at an office building is connected to a suicide that happened about a mile away.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says 51-year-old Jimmy Morgan of Gresham shot himself as police approached his sedan Saturday in northeast Portland. The officers were responding to a report of a man with a gun sitting in a vehicle.

Hours later, police found 36-year-old Mitra Mehrabadi dead at an office in northeast Portland. An autopsy determined she had been shot multiple times.

Homicide detectives have learned that Morgan and Mehrabadi were co-workers at a Portland insurance company and knew each other.
