Police identify man killed in Glisan Street shooting

Police identify man killed in Glisan Street shooting

PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland police said they found a man dead after responding to a report of a shooting in the Montavilla Neighborhood Monday night.

Police said the call came in just before 8 p.m. to report a shooting at Northeast 92nd Place and Glisan Street. Multiple gunshots were reported and a man was found dead.

On Tuesday, police identified the victim as Durell Gee Davis, 42. They said an autopsy showed he died of a gunshot wound. 

Police blocked off a large section of the area while they conducted their investigation and closed Glisan from 88th to the Interstate 205 overpass. Officers searched for clues in the pouring rain using flashlights.

Neighbor Tom Murphy said the situation was pretty chaotic.

"We were on my top deck of my apartment and seen two people run by  - and don't think much about that - and three other people came running by and it was like, I better see what's going on," he said.

Murphy said people were coming from a nearby bar. Police said that while Davis was found dead not far from the bar, they don't know if there's any connection to the business.

Police looked for a suspect but didn't find one.

They don't have a suspect description and they said they didn't find a gun. Police did not say if they thought the shooting was gang-related.

Police ask that anyone with information call Detective Mark Slater at 503-823-9319, or Detective Erik Kammerer at 503-823-0762. Tips can be submitted anonymously.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you can remain anonymous.
