A 30-year-old Portland man was shot and killed Friday in East Portland, police said.

Portland police said Christopher Klein died where he was shot, at Burnside Street and 122nd Avenue. The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m.

After the shooting, Portland police initially said only that the intersection was closed. Police did not disclose someone had been fatally shot until Saturday afternoon.

Klein is the second Portlander shot and killed in as many days. Lasalle Shakier, 29, was killed Wednesday in Northeast Portland. The city has recorded a historically high number of fatal shootings this summer.

Police have not disclosed any details about the circumstances of either shooting.
