PORTLAND Officers pursued a man in a high-speed chase who was suspected of shooting another man at the Hathaway Apartments at 3320 Southeast 134th Avenue early Saturday, police said.

The suspect crashed his truck into a fence at Northeast 148th Avenue and Northeast San Rafael Street around 4 a.m., said Lt. Robert King with the Portland Police Bureau.

Officers shot at the man after he crashed but he refused to comply with police. Authorities then called in the Special Emergency Response Team to take the suspect into custody, King said.

The suspect was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and a firearm was located at the scene.

Police did not release the name of the victim who was shot before the chase.
