Two people dead after shots fired in southeast Portland home

  Two people dead after shots fired in southeast Portland home Two people are dead after a shooting in a Southeast Portland home Sunday evening. Portland police responded at about 7 p.m. to a welfare check call at a residence in the 8400 block of Southeast 138th Drive. When officers saw a subject on the ground in the house, they forced entry and discovered that the person was an injured woman. According to a police news release, officers then heard what sounded like someone else in the residence racking a firearm (a sound many firearms make when made ready to shoot). Police retreated and called for assistance. One of the officers saw a male subject in the house with what appeared to be a handgun.

Zoelle and his wife were together at the bar with Zoelle’s younger brother. The younger brother’s divorce finalized that night, according to police.

The brother made unwanted advances towards Zoelle’s wife, whom he dated years early, according to police. Zoelle argued with his brother and the two fought, according to police.

Someone separated the two, but the younger brother lunged at Zoelle, according to police. Zoelle told police he pulled out his gun and fired a single shot at the ground. He said he fired the shot to scare his brother, not to hit him, according to police reports.

The bullet ricocheted off the ground and hit a 61-year-old man in the leg as he drank at the bar, according to police. He was taken to MetroHealth for treatment.
