PORTLAND, Ore. — A man died late Sunday night in Southeast Portland after reports of gunfire, according to Portland police.
Officers were dispatched to the 4000 block of Southeast 94th Avenue at 11:47 p.m. They found a man in the street injured and provided first aid. Medical crews arrived and determined he had died.
The man was identified on Tuesday as 21-year-old Izryl Johnson, of Portland. The Oregon Medical Examiner's Office determined Johnson died as a result of homicidal violence, police said.
Police searched the area to no avail. No suspect information has been released. Police said there does not appear to be a danger to the community.
Heidy Hernandez, 15, who lives nearby, told KGW she heard shots from her home.
"We thought they were fireworks and we didn't look out until we heard the man screaming for help," she said. "It was really scary because we've never experienced anything like that, so me and my brothers were really scared. There have been other things happening in this neighborhood so we don't know whether to feel safe or not anymore."
Annie Leu, who has lived on the street for years, said she wasn't able to sleep after hearing the shots.
"Scary, the whole night I not sleep," she said. "I wait for my older boy come back."
The I-205 multi-use path that runs along the stretch of street where the man was shot has caused trouble for neighbors in the past, police said. They are asking anyone who may have been on the path and seen anything in the area Sunday night to contact homicide detectives at 503-823-0479.
