Authorities said a man died after being shot by a security guard outside a southeast Portland strip club early Tuesday after a confrontation erupted between two men and the security guard. The name of the victim was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
Portland Police Officers responded to the incident when a report of the disturbance and shooting at the Dream On Saloon, located at 15920 S.E. Stark St., came in around 2:30 a.m.
A 911 caller reported that a man had been shot by a private security guard. It happened after the two men had approached the security guard in the parking lot where a disturbance ensued, police said.
The injured man was discovered nearby after fleeing, police said. He was provided emergency first aid and transported by ambulance to a hospital, but later died from his injuries. The second man also fled the scene, but was later arrested.
Police said the security guard is cooperating with police and there is no known risk to the public.
The incident is the second deadly shooting that has occurred at the strip club in three months.
