Crime Stoppers of Oregon and the Gresham Police Department are seeking more information on a 2015 deadly shooting of a 25-year-old man.

On May 11, 2015, officers responded to the report of a shooting at a home located at 1815 Northwest 7th Place around 11:21 p.m. When officers arrived on scene, they found Erick Austin Carnegie dead in the street near the home.

A witness told police that while Carnegie was walking up to the home, two suspects approached him from behind and forced him inside the home. Police said there was a medical marijuana growing operation at the home.

Police said Carnegie was shot in the home, and then the suspects got into a vehicle parked on the street and drove away.
