PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman is facing an attempted murder charge after allegedly shooting a man in the face at a home in the Foster-Powell neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

Just before 4:30 p.m., Portland police officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 3500 Block of Southeast 79th Avenue.
