PORTLAND -- The family of 30-year-old Robert Greene, who was fatally shot outside a Portland bowling alley last month, has now offered a $2,100 reward for information leading to an arrest in connection with his murder.
Police responding to the report of a shooting February 19 in the 800 block of SE Morrison Street found Greene at the scene. He had been working security outside the Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge when he was shot.
He died from a single gunshot wound, an autopsy concluded.
Background: Deadly shooting outside Portland bowling alley
Witnesses described the shooter as a black male, who was seen leaving the area in a dark SUV. No arrests were made in the case.
"Investigators know that there were several witnesses outside at the time of the shooting that have failed to provide information to detectives," Sgt. Pete Simpson said.
Greene's family announced Friday they had raised $2,100 to offer as a reward for a tip that leads to an arrest in the case. Crime Stoppers also offered a reward of up to $1,000.
"He was a great brother, spent a lot of time with my wife and me and my kids," Ken Greene said Friday. "I think the hardest thing is: Just last week I was barbecueing and he wasn’t going to be there; he was there on a regular basis."
"I’ve seen the outside of these clubs in the evening, there’s 20, 30, 40 people," he added. "How can not one person come forward to give police information so this can be put behind us and be resolved?"
Anyone with information was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-4357 or contact Detective Molly Daul.
