PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities say a Portland State University officer shot and killed a person outside a sports bar near campus.

Portland police Sgt. Chris Burley says the shooting happened Friday at 1:30 a.m.

Video sent by a bystander to KOIN-TV shows university officers at the scene of a fight involving several men outside the Cheerful Tortoise. During the scuffle, someone yelled there's a gun. Then shots were fired.

Burley says Portland police will handle the investigation.

The names of the officer and the person killed have not been released.

Against the objection of protesters, the Portland State University Board of Trustees voted in 2015 to have campus officers carry firearms.
