Portland police detectives investigate the deadly shooting of a 16-year-old on Southeast 136th Avenue between Holgate and Division Street on Dec. 14.

PORTLAND, Ore. — A 16-year-old was killed in a Monday afternoon shooting in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood, according to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB).

Abdushukri Uren, 16, was struck by gunfire during a shooting incident that took place over several blocks of Southeast 136th Avenue from Holgate Boulevard to Division Street, police said. 

The teen was found gravely wounded near 136th and Division and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The state medical examiner's office ruled the death a homicide. 

A stretch of nearly one mile of 136th was closed for much of the night as police investigated. 

No suspect description or information about a possible motive were released. 

Police are asking to speak with witnesses or anyone who may have video footage of the shooting incident. 

Uren's death marked Portland's 49th homicide of 2020 and the 36th homicide of the year that involved a gun. 

The incident was one of at least three fatal shootings Monday in the Portland metro area. 

Police in Gresham said one person was found dead after a shooting around 11 p.m. near Northeast Clackamas Street and 192nd Avenue. PPB said there was also a shooting around 9:50 p.m. on North Lombard Street near Chase Avenue. On Tuesday evening they announced the victim in that shooting had died.
