Police identify Gresham shooting victim

Deadly shooting at a Gresham park

GRESHAM, Ore. — A 32-year-old Portland man died after being shot Sunday evening at Pat Pfeifer Park in Gresham, police said.

The victim, Adrian Gilberto Berg, was attending a social event at the park, police said. The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office say he died as a result of gunfire and ruled his death a homicide.

Police say Berg got into an argument at around 8 p.m. with an unidentified man who shot Berg and then fled the area. The shooting happened in the southeastern part of the park, around Northeast 176th Avenue and Northeast Davis Street.

After police arrived and found Berg suffering from his injuries, he was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he died.

The suspect is described by police as a black man in his 20s or 30s. It is unclear if the two men knew each other, police say.

The suspect remains at large, but police told KGW on Sunday night that there is no danger to the community. The East County Major Crimes team is investigating the death.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting or has information about the suspect is asked to call the Gresham Police tip line at 503-618-2719.
