PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Four people lost their lives in just the last three days in Portland. Three of them died less than 24 hours apart.

Earlier this week, Portland police reported a significant jump in shootings. Comparing last July to this July, they say they’ve seen a 240 percent increase.

In just three days, there were three shootings and a stabbing.

On Wednesday at about 4 p.m., police responded to Southeast Water Avenue where they found 32-year-old Cody Vickers stabbed. He was transported to the hospital where he died.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office says the suspect, 52-year-old Stephen Bache, is charged with second degree murder.

Just after 8 p.m. on Thursday, police say a man was shot outside Reveal nightclub on Southwest Barbur Boulevard. Police say the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspect, 25-year-old Jordan Clark, was arrested and faces a second-degree murder charge.

Police responded to another shooting around 12:45 p.m. Friday near Southeast Flavel Street and Southeast 84th Avenue.

Family members say the victim killed in this shooting was a bubbly 18-year-old who had just graduated high school.

“It just hurts. I’m just really torn up right now, but she was good people, very good people,” a family member said.

A neighbor named Trisha says she saw the victim and a man arguing.

Trisha says after a car came to pick the man up, the man shot the 18-year-old.

“Me and another neighbor were there with her and they had their hand on her heart to make sure she was still breathing and whatever. And I held her hand and told her ‘they’re coming, they’re coming. Hang on. hang on,’” said Trisha.

Police have identified the victim as 18-year-old Shai-India Harris. At this point, there is no information about the suspect in this case.

And just after 9 p.m. Friday, officers responded to another shooting near Southeast 136th Avenue and Southeast Powell Boulevard where a man was shot.

Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim was later identified as 19-year-old Julian Heredia.

After police responded to the three unconnected deaths in less than 24 hours, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a press release that he is “deeply disturbed by the loss of life our city has seen in such a short time.”

He asks anyone with information to call police.

Liberals get what they deserve when they vote to defund PPB.

It's great. They will literally destroy the city of Portland and turn all the normies into Republican voters. Keep it up liberals.

This is what happens when leaders care more about criminals and being PC than actually LEADING. This city is hopeless.
