One woman has died and six other people were wounded after a shooting in downtown Portland, Oregon, early Saturday, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

The victims were taken by ambulance to a hospital, where the woman was treated for what police had described as serious wounds.

The woman, who was not identified, died at a hospital, police said in a statement later Saturday.

The Portland Police Bureau updated the number of victims, saying a total of seven people—not eight, as it reported earlier—had been struck by gunfire.

The other six victims sustained wounds of varying degrees of severity, though the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Officers did not locate a suspect or suspects and no arrests had been made, police said.

Parts of Southwest Third Avenue were closed during the investigation, police said.

In the nation’s capital on Friday night, a 6-year-old girl was killed and five adults injured in a shooting in the southeast part of the district, authorities said.

The child was pronounced dead at a local hospital, police said. Three men and two women sustained non-life-threatening injuries, said Metropolitan Police Department Executive Assistant Chief Ashan Benedict.
