A 34-year-old man armed with a machete was shot by Portland Police. It happened in the 3400 of Southwest Dakota. A woman called 911 saying her son was suicidal and threatening suicide by cop. Sergeant Pete Simpson says they used bean bags rounds and a taser, but they had no effect; so an officer fired one round.
The man was hospitalized and is expected to survive. Police expect to release more information later today.
