GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

Police have identified the 22-year-old man who was shot and killed in Gresham on Friday afternoon.

Police said Ravell Deshawn Sterling of Portland was shot near the intersection of Southeast 174th Avenue and Stark Street at 2:33 p.m. Friday.

Sterling was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspects were gone when police arrived, but a short time later Portland officers located a vehicle matching one from the shooting scene heading north on Interstate 205.

A chase continued into Washington on Interstate 5. It finally came to an end when Cowlitz County deputies deployed spike strips near Kelso and a Washington State Patrol trooper used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.

Three suspects were taken into custody. Rony Celis, 32, of Renton Washington, Charles Moimoi, 20, of Seatac, Washington, and Clayton Harrell, 18, of Des Moines, Washington, were booked in the Cowlitz County Jail on charges related to the homicide.

Troopers said guns were clearly visible inside their car.

Detectives said Monday they are continuing to investigate what led to the shooting and what connection, if any, Sterling had with the three suspects.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to call the Gresham Police tip line at 503-618-2719.
