GRESHAM, Ore. -- A man shot and killed inside a Gresham house Sunday night was identified by police Monday as 23-year-old Shane M. Brumbaugh.

Police Tuesday released information on a vehicle connected with the shooting.

A car with several occupants pulled up outside a house near Northeast Hale Place and Paropa Court, said Sgt. Claudio Grandjean of the Gresham Police Department. The occupants of the car got out, several shots were fired and the suspects returned to the car and sped away.

Brumbaugh lived in the home with his girlfriend and his son. Witnesses said they saw three men in the car, who waited for Brumbaugh to come out of the house, approached him and began shooting.

Neighbors who saw Brumbaugh shortly before the shooting said they were were shocked to later see flashing lights and police cars right outside their doors.

"I'm still unbelieving because I don't know certain details," said friend and neighbor Nellie Simon. "I don't know what happened, why someone would want to shoot him."

Late Monday, the medical examiner's officer confirmed that Brumbaugh had died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Police Tuesday said it was not a random act of violence. They also said the suspect vehicle might be a smaller, light silver 4-door vehicle' possibly an import. It was likely being driven erratically and aggressively around the neighborhood Sunday night.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Gresham Police Department at (503) 823-3333.
