A representative for the Portland Police Bureau did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Speaking with FOX 12 Oregon, a neighbour — identified only as Brenda — told the outlet she was home when the shooting incident occurred. “I was asleep,” she said. “I heard a couple of gunshots, and then I heard a car zoom off.”
Brenda said she went upstairs to ask her granddaughter if she had heard the gunfire.
“I said, ‘Did you hear anything?’ ” she told the outlet. “She’s like, ‘Somebody just shot some gunshots and zoomed off.’ Then a few minutes later, there [were] police cars everywhere.”
Authorities did not reveal details surrounding what led to the shooting. It is not immediately clear if Martre has a lawyer to provide comment to PEOPLE on his behalf.
