PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police say a man found injured in a downtown shooting has died.

Portland Police told The Oregonian/OregonLive that the man shot was identified as 30-year-old Ellante Davone Williams of Portland.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office determined Williams died from a gunshot injury.

The gunfire erupted late Sunday afternoon, just northwest of the Morrison Bridge. Williams was found in a vehicle parked at an intersection.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Aaron Drake Birt a few streets from the scene. He’s been booked into jail on a charge of murder as well as a parole violation for a previous conviction of robbery.


This story has been updated to show police correcting suspect’s last name to Birt, not Brit.
