Sgt. Pete Simpson told The Oregonian ( http://is.gd/ALkDR6) the 40-year-old man’s wound is “consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants.”
The initial shooting occurred Tuesday night in the parking lot of a downtown apartment building near Portland State University.
The wounded 32-year-old man ran to Safeway store for help. He was later taken to the hospital with a leg injury.
Police say the suspect shot himself while trying to leave the scene.
