A Portland man was shot in the chest Wednesday night during an apparent dispute with two or more people at the intersection of Sunset and Blair streets.

Jose Dominguez, 35, was taken by helicopter to FHP Hospital, where he was stabilized. He then went to University Hospital, where he remained in serious but stable condition Thursday.One of Dominguez's attackers shot at him three times with a 9 mm pistol. One of the bullets went through Dominguez's back and exited through the front of his chest, police said. The attackers then fled in an older-model Blazer-type truck while Dominguez staggered to the porch of a nearby house to seek help.

The shooter apparently was outside the truck when he fired at Dominguez.

Police are continuing their search for the suspects. They do not yet know whether the shooting was gang-related.
