PORTLAND, Oregon - Detectives found the bodies of two adults and a child in Southeast Portland Thursday.

It happened at the home on SE 123rd Avenue south of Stark Street. Police confirmed the discovery of three bodies at 10 a.m.

Portland Police identified the three as 29-year-old Ceantwan Lorenzo Barr, 28-year-old Tameka Yvonne Medina, and 4-year-old Ashawn Medina-Barr.

A man claiming to be a relative of one of the victims said the alleged shooter and his longtime girlfriend were going through a breakup.

He said he thinks the shooting occurred days ago. The bodies were discovered Thursday when a family member gained entry to the rental house with the landlord.

Detectives think the man shot the woman and the child then took his own life with a handgun found at the scene.

A missing persons report was filed Wednesday night, but police said they did not have justification to enter the house.
