PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland police are offering a $1,000 reward for anyone with information about suspects in a shooting outside a nightclub that killed one man and injured two others.

The shooting happened outside the Fontaine Bleau nightclub early Saturday morning. As many as 100 people spilled into the streets where police said they were rioting, drawing a massive response from officers around the city.

Many people in the crowd scattered and when the melee cleared officers found that Durieul Joseph Harris had been shot multiple times. He died at the scene.

Two other people were also shot but did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Homicide detectives interviewed several witnesses but think that many others with critical info fled.

They hope the $1,000 reward will entice somebody with info to come forward.
