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.
