Two men face murder and robbery charges in the death of 18-year-old Dohnavinh Saelee, victim of a shooting in Southeast Portland in 2021.
Zachary Retonong, 21, and Winkel Sienson Walter, 19, were arrested in November for the homicide.
A security guard found Saelee's body August 7, 2021, at around 4:40 a.m. in the area of Southeast Holgate Boulevard and Southeast 128th Avenue. Officers found "evidence of a shooting," according to Portland police in a news release.
Both suspects are current in Multnomah County jails as their court cases progress. Each is charged with Murder in the First Degree, Murder in the Second Degree, Conspiracy to Commit Murder, Robbery in the First Degree and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle.
At the time of Saelee's death, there have been 58 homicides in Portland in 2021, surpassing 55 homicides in 2020, police said. Portland is on pace to surpass the most homicide deaths in a year, which was 70 set in 1987.
