Officers responded to a report of multiple people shot in the 300 block of Southwest 3rd Avenue just after 2:00 a.m. When they arrived, they found several people injured and called in paramedics.

The most severely injured person was Makayla Maree Harris, who later died at the hospital, according to PPB. The other six victims have varying degrees of severity, though their injuries were believed to be non-life-threatening.

Her family has setup a GoFundMe for funeral expenses.

Detectives believe that witnesses may have left right after the shooting without talking to police.

You need an armed bodyguard venturing into Portland these days


Where are the social workers they could have stopped this. One things my grandpa taught me so was nothing good happens after midnight. Boy was he right! Guess the meaning of this news article is “defund” the police. How is that working for you? You voted these Dems in. Of course Darwin was right again…..


The lie that Black Lives Matter. If they did the black community would want these people held accountable. Much easier to cry racism than to hold the real people accountable. If you don't want your children dead or in prison, start raising them better.



Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Witnesses who left without helping the police to identify the shooter or shooters are gutless, and are no better than the shooters themselves. Right now there's a killer or killers out there, that think nothing of human life. The police are not the enemy. Those would blame the police, and defund them..they are the enemy.


I grew up in Portland when crime was virtually non existent. At 18 years old my parents would never have allowed me to be downtown at 2am. Downtown Portland in 2021 is a LESS SAFE than it has ever been. Like the old saying goes. Nothing good happens after midnight. Especially in Portlandia


things appear to be safer when you hit the hay around 9 or 10 pm.


Where’s Antifa? They could of chased down the witnesses & murderers in their cape and masks & saved the day🤡


Antifa they were to busy looting to care about this.
