Homicide victim's identity unknown, Portland police say
The Portland Police Bureau is seeking the public's help to identify a man shot dead in Northeast Portland.
Officers responded to the Parkrose neighborhood around 4:15 a.m. Jan. 12 following reports of a shooting in the 4800 block of Northeast 100th Avenue. Authorities have determined the killing was a homicide — but the victim's identity remains unknown.
Police say the man is light skinned, possibly Hispanic, in his 30s, standing about 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighing 169 pounds with short brown hair and a goatee.
He was found wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with "Athletic Dept 21" printed on the front in blue letters, with blue and white stripes on each arm. He also was wearing dark jeans and black boots, and had a distinctive tattoo on his left arm.
