Klamath Falls police arrested an 18-year-old man on a murder warrant issued out of Multnomah County on Monday.

Shannon Anthony Lyons Jr. is accused of killing 19-year-old Vinesh Ram Prasad of North Portland.

The investigation started Aug. 10, 2011 when Portland police officers responded to Northeast Sandy Boulevard and 119th Avenue on a call of an injured man.

As officers arrived, they found Prasad lying in the street, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Paramedics were called to the scene, but he died shortly after their arrival.

Homicide detectives have continuously investigated this case and ultimately identified Lyons as the suspect in Prasad's death, police said.

Detectives would still like to hear from anyone with information about his murder.

You can call Detective Mark Sponhauer at 503-823-0416, or Detective Kristina Coffey at 503-823-0696, with information about this case.
