Man found shot to death in NE Portland home

PORTLAND, Ore. – A man found dead at a Northeast Portland home on Monday was the victim of a shooting, according to the Oregon State Medical Examiner.

Police responded to a home in the 3500 block of Northeast 10th Avenue shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Monday. They found 36-year-old Brian Elton Spaulding dead.

On Tuesday, the medical examiner ruled Spaulding’s death a homicide, the 10th in Portland this year.

Police said there is no suspect information or known reason for why Spaulding would be killed.

"At this point, again, there's nothing in the way of suspects giving us an idea of why he was killed and that's what we're hoping that public can provide us," said Sgt. Pete Simpson, spokesman for Portland police.

Anyone with information about Spaulding’s death should contact Detective Todd Gradwahl at 503-823-0991 or Detective Rico Beniga at 503-823-0457.
