To encourage people with information to come forward, the FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000.

“Even as the victims attempted to drive away, the suspects pursued them, continuing to shoot in broad daylight. Disturbingly, neighbors, safe within their homes, heard dozens of gunshots and discovered shell casings in their yards,” said Kieran L. Ramsey, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Portland Field Office. “We are aware that there are people in the community who possess crucial information about this incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI Portland Field Office at (503) 224-4181.
