The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to solve the July 2021 mass shooting in Downtown Portland that killed Makayla Harris.
On Saturday, July 17, 2021 at approximately 2:10 a.m., Portland Police Bureau officers responded to reports of multiple people shot in the 300 block of Southwest 3rd Avenue. Officers arriving at the scene found multiple people injured so officers initiated lifesaving measures. Seven gunshot victims were transported by ambulance to Portland area hospitals for treatment. One of those victims, 18-year-old Makayla Maree Harris, died as a result of her injuries.
The Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on Ms. Harris and determined that she died as a result of a gunshot wound and ruled the death a homicide.
Detectives believe that numerous people left the scene of the shooting without speaking to police and that some of those people may have information needed to help solve this case.
Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
