Portland police are investigating their second officer-involved shooting in the past 36 hours.

The latest incident is at a house near Southeast 126th and Holgate.

Just before 6 a.m., police and FBI agents were attempting to serve a federal warrant at the home.

After a search of the house was unsuccessful, officers found an armed man in an outbuilding on the property.

A Portland Police officer, who has not been identified, fired one shot, striking the man.

He died at the scene. No other details have been released.

The FBI won't comment on the specifics of the warrant, but a spokeswoman confirms the warrant was one of several being served in the Portland area.

This is the second officer involved shooting for Portland Police in the past two days. Late Tuesday night, a man with a gun died after two Portland officers opened fire near Northeast 91st and Glisan.
