PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police continued a search Saturday for a man and his 2-year-old daughter after police found a woman suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound in a Gresham apartment.

The shooting on Saturday morning led police to the apartment, and the woman was taken to an area hospital. Police did not identify her or release details on her condition.
