Portland Police said on Monday the victim killed in the Old Town on Christmas Eve was a 41-year-old man.
Derrick Kenreko Marshall was found with a gunshot wound at Northwest Sixth Avenue and Davis Street around 8:50 p.m. on Friday, police said. Marshall was taken to hospital where he died, police said. The suspects fled before police arrived, police said.
Marshall’s death marks the fifth murder in Portland in less than a week and the 87th homicide since the start of the year, well above the annual record of 70 homicides in 1987.
The latest round of fatal shootings began on Saturday, December 18, when a 38-year-old man was shot and killed near North Flint Avenue and Hancock Street in the Eliot neighborhood. Early Sunday, a man accidentally shot dead his 27-year-old cousin after arguing with others outside of a southeast Portland strip club, according to police and prosecutors. A 30-year-old man was found shot dead in the 2000 block of Southwest Morrison Street in the Goose Hollow neighborhood early Tuesday. A fourth man, whose identity has not been disclosed to police, appears to have died of a gunshot wound found Thursday morning in a tent on North Vancouver Avenue and Farragut Street, police said.
