PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) on Monday identified the four men who died after a shootout at a Southeast Portland home on June 6.

The men were found dead at a house on Southeast Boise Street, between 39th and 42nd Avenues. The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported an attempted marijuana robbery led to a gunfight. Two men who flew to Portland from Texas and two half-brothers from Portland died. A third man from Texas got away in a van after the shooting.

PPB has not publicly released any details about what led to the shooting. On Monday, more than a week after the men were found dead, detectives released their names: 31-year-old Mitchell Nacoste, 27-year-old Kendall Gragg, 24-year-old Donovan Lenford and 23-year-old Eyion Willis.

All four men died of homicide by gunshot, PPB said.

Family members allowed PPB to release photos of Nacoste and Gragg.

PPB did not release any more information Monday, citing an ongoing investigation.
