The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in solving a 2014 homicide that occurred in Southeast Portland's Woodstock Neighborhood.

On July 22, 2014, at 10:56 p.m., Portland Police Bureau officers responded to the report of a shooting at Southeast 57th Avenue and Harold Street. As officers were enroute to the scene, additional information was broadcast that a male adult was on the ground injured.

Officers and medical personnel arrived and located the victim, determining that he was deceased.

The Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on the victim, 19-year-old Paul William Krekeler, and determined that he died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Detectives have learned that several neighborhood residents heard several gunshots prior to the discovery of Krekeler's body. Krekeler appears to have run northbound on 57th Avenue before collapsing in a yard on the southwest corner of 57th Avenue and Harold Street.

Witnesses reported to police that a white SUV or truck was seen leaving southbound on 57th after the gunshots, but it is not been confirmed that this vehicle is related to the shooting.

No motive has been determined in the shooting.
