SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- A man was killed Sunday night in a shooting in the Madison South neighborhood of Portland, U.S. state of Oregon, police said.

The man's identity has not been released, and no arrests have been made, local police said Monday morning.

People living in the area heard five to seven gunshots Sunday night at a housing complex. Neighbors said they did not hear police sirens until about an hour after they heard the shots, according to a report by Oregonlive.

In August 2021, two gang members were fatally gunned down at a nearby intersection, and four others were wounded, the report said.

The homicide marks the sixth fatal shooting in Portland since the start of 2022. In 2021, the city had 90 homicides.
