Victims identified in NE Portland double-homicide
PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - The Portland Police Bureau has identified two victims in a Wednesday night NE Portland shooting.
Officers were first called out to the 2000 block of Northeast Lombard Street at 9:12 p.m. on reports of a shooting. Officers arrived at the scene and found a woman dead.
Police said detectives and criminalists were processing the scene and found a second person, a man, dead nearby.
On Friday, police identified the victims as Deja Willingham, 27, and Marcel Bryant, 30.
The medical examiner found both died as a result of “homicide by gunshot wounds,” PPB says.
A GoFundMe has been established following Bryant’s death to help his family with the cost of a funeral, who say they don’t have the money to pay for it.
The investigation into the shooting remains active and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Travis Law at email@example.com or (503)823-0395, or Detective Ryan Foote at firstname.lastname@example.org or (503)823-0781, and reference case number 23-88186.
