The Domestic Violence Reduction Unit (DVRU) responded to the location and is continuing the investigation.

Domestic violence is among the most frequent and serious forms of violent crime investigated by police. If you or a loved one are experiencing domestic violence or are concerned that domestic violence may be an issue, help is available.

Call to Safety (formerly the Portland Women's Crisis Line) provides access to advocacy services, including confidential peer support, information, and referrals to community resources. 24 hour crisis line: 503-235-5333, 1-888-235-5333, or

Additional, web-based resources are available from Multnomah County's Domestic Violence Coordinator's office:

The Portland Police Bureau's Domestic Violence Reduction Unit (DVRU) provides officers and detectives with specialized training in the dynamics of domestic violence. This unit also operates jointly with Multnomah County's Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) on "high-lethality" cases of domestic violence (those cases with warning signs associated with the most severe and life-threatening cases of domestic violence).

Information on DVRU is available at:

Finally, the City of Portland, Multnomah County and numerous other partners have joined together to create The Gateway Center. The Gateway Center attempts to limit the impact of intimate partner violence through by providing multi-cultural and survivor-centered advocacy and services. Given the complexity of domestic violence, this center provides a single-point of access to services and resources for survivors of intimate partner violence.
